‘Govt concerned about people for the last 13 years’

In a strong statement to defend her government on Sunday, Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit said the government has shown concern for people of the city for the last 13 years.

She said her government was committed to delivering benefits to all the needy in the society and they would leave no stone unturned to provide help to the aam Admi (common man), the backbone of the overall development of Delhi.

Dikshit was speaking on the occasion of an international cooperative’s annual function, organised at Yamuna Vihar.

The CM also said the cooperative movement has proved to be solid bedrock for development in the country.

Dikshit said, ‘Due to substantial contribution by a number of cooperative societies, our economy has become rich and it has resulted in improvement of living standard. Lakhs of cooperative societies in the country have accelerated the pace of development. Cooperative movement has also gone a long way in consolidating the women empowerment movement.’

She added, ‘The movement was helpful in constructing a large number of dwelling units for members of the cooperative group housing societies in Delhi.’
After the debacle in the recent municipal elections, Delhi government is shifting their focus back on the votebank for the forthcoming Assembly elections slated next year.

Recently, Delhi Cabinet approved 1,018 unauthorised colonies to be developed soon after recommendations of the Group of Ministers (GoM) in respect of various issues related to unauthorised colonies.


The Delhi government will build over 50 toilet complexes in various east Delhi localities as part of its effort to provide better sanitation facilities.

It is also planning to construct more community centres in east Delhi to ensure that residents do not face difficulties in organising social gatherings.

This was announced by Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit while inaugurating a new guest house of Dedeshiye Bharat Mandal at Karkardooma institutional area. Health Minister Ashok Walia was also present at the occasion.

‘The building of 50-60 toilets in east Delhi will go a long way in serving the sanitation needs of the area,’ Dikshit said. She said the city government is fully
conscious of the developmental needs of the trans-Yamuna area and committed to fulfill them in the right earnest.

The last few years had witnessed coming up of super-speciality and other hospitals, community centres and a cultural centre in east Delhi, Dikshit said.
