NEW DELHI, May 1, 2019—Congress candidate for the North East Delhi Parliamentary constituency Smt. Sheila Dikshit expressed her concern at the plight of her Lok Sabha constituency as it cannot be called a Parliamentary seat of a national Capital by any stretch of imagination as no development work seems to have taken place in the area in the last five years.
Smt. Sheila Dikshit said that the broken roads, the dirty, stinking and polluted lanes and by-lanes, houses constructed in a haphazard manner and the mounts of garbage piling up everywhere give it the look of a forsaken land in the back and beyond of the country, and not a Lok Sabha seat in the national Capital. She said that it seems neither the BJP MP from the area nor the Aam Aadmi Party MLAs have done any development works in the area. Nor have they given any attention to the constituency in any manner.
Smt. Sheila Dikshit said that the North East Delhi Parliamentary constituency has been totally neglected by the people’s representatives from the area despite they getting crores of rupees as MP and MLA funds for the area’s development. Smt Sheila Dikshit, who is the president of the Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee, made these observations at a big public meeting organized at the Shiv Vihar Pulia in the Mustafabad Assembly constituency by former MLA Shri Hassan Ahmed and DPCC Minority Cell chairman Shri Ali Mehndi. The programme was also attended by former MP Shri Udit Raj, former Delhi Minister Shri Haroon Yusuf, A.R.Joshi, Ashok Bandel and thousands of Congress workers.
Smt. Sheila Dikshit said that if she is elected from the North East Delhi Lok Sabha seat, she will find immediate solution to the problems dogging the area and its residents. She said that with her experience as the Chief Minister of Delhi for 15 years, and with the help and support of the people of the area, she knows what needs to be done for the all-round development of North East Delhi to make the lives of the people of the area smoother and brighter. She said that with her own will power to bring development and the co-operation of the people, the face of the North East Delhi can be changed with judicious development, to make it a model constituency not only in Delhi, but also in the country.
