Delhi BJP ‘Vachan Patra’ released
The Delhi BJP President Shri Adesh Gupta, former Delhi President Shri Manoj Tiwari and Delhi BJP Election Management Committee convener Shri Ashish Sood on 10 November, 2022 released the ‘Vachan Patra’ saying the party will provide houses for all those who are living in slums in Delhi, which is one of its main promises in the upcoming MCD polls.
Releasing the ‘Vachan Patra’, Delhi BJP President Shri Adesh Gupta said under the leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, the Central Government has fulfilled its promises under “Jahan Jhuggi Wahi Makan”. The Central Government has proved that by giving Pucca houses to 3024 slum dwellers living in Delhi’s slums, BJP does not make empty promises but fulfills what it says.
He said that the BJP will once again get the slum dwellers who are left out of a Pucca house after they give an undertaking and this work has already started, whether it is a Kathputli Colony or a Jailor Wala Bagh.
Shri Gupta said that the Green Budget was presented by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in the Assembly in 2016, in which along with installing 26 smog towers, many other promises were made to purify the air of Delhi, but today, Delhi remains a continuous gas chamber and now all hollow claims of Kejriwal have come out in front of everyone.
The BJP, on 09 November also formed a 20-member election committee for the upcoming MCD polls and it will be headed by the party’s Delhi unit President Shri Adesh Gupta. The committee, including all the seven BJP MPs from Delhi and other senior leaders, was formed after the approval of BJP National President Shri JP Nadda.
