Pollution, Traffic, Garbage in Delhi – Kya Hua Tera Vaada, Neta?
Friends, the elections are upon us. First, the Lok Sabha elections and then the Delhi Assembly election. So, a question to Delhi’s netas – kya hua tera vaada?
Be it the MP, MLA, or the councillor – kya hua tera vaada? Tell us what you have done in the past five years so that we can decide on that basis whom to vote for.
Has there been any difference in Delhi’s pollution? Any difference in traffic jams?Congestion? Answer us. In the last 25 to 30 years, every mohalla in Delhi has water-logging as soon as the monsoon starts. Did anyone do anything?
In the summers people in all nooks are thirsty for water. Has anything been done?
Waste is burned in landfills all around Delhi, leading to smoke and pollution. Did you do anything? Answer us. It was said so many times that there shouldn’t be trifurcation of the MCD, but you still did it.
What did you get out of it? In the last 4 and a half years there was a strike by sanitation workers in East Delhi six to eight times. Garbage, waste, stench and disease are all around. What have we achieved?
I would like to ask again – kya hua tera vaada? What have you done in the past five years for us to vote for you?
Finally, I want to ask you one question. If all manifestos by political parties are made legally binding, would you mind? At least no one will be able to lie and take the citizens for granted. At least there will be hope that the promises made in the manifesto would be fulfilled.
I am awaiting a response from you, my netas.
