New Delhi: Before the Delhi Municipal Corporation elections, Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal made a big announcement regarding RWAs. He said that if the Aam Aadmi Party comes to power, they will bring in 'Janta Chalegi MCD' scheme. Under this, RWA will be given the status of mini councillor. Along with this, financial assistance will also be given to RWAs for their office and public works.
Significantly, voting for the Delhi Municipal Corporation elections is scheduled to be held on Sunday, December 4, 2022. In such a situation, all the political parties are trying their best to appeal to the public. In the same series, Arvind Kejriwal announced that if AAP wins the Delhi MCD elections, the Residents Welfare Association will be given the status of mini-councillor.
Let us note that Arvind Kejriwal claimed in a press conference held at his residence in Civil Laws that the Aam Aadmi Party is moving towards a historic victory in the corporation. He said that the common man will not have to go to politicians or officials to get their work done. The authority for all these works will be given to the RWA. They will be empowered in the real sense.
During the press conference, Arvind Kejriwal said that now the public will take a decision and the government will work. Just like a councillor is the leader of a ward, similarly, the RWA will be considered the leader of that area.
If the public has to work in their area, instead of going to the leader, one has to go to the office of the RWA of his area. They can share their problem there. RWA will be given the right to get the work done.
Arvind Kejriwal said that under the empowerment of RWAs, funds will be given to RWAs to run their offices and get work done. This process will be completely transparent and online. After the announcement, Kejriwal appealed to the people of RWA, to go door to door and appeal to the people to vote.
It may be noted that the Municipal Corporation of Delhi has been divided into three parts before the elections this year: North Delhi, South Delhi and East Delhi. For the last fifteen years, all three zones or municipal corporations have been occupied by the BJP. In May this year, Municipal corporation areas were merged into one. This means that Delhi will now have only one mayor instead of three.
Let us inform you that the voting for Delhi Municipal Corporation Election (Delhi MCD Election) will be held on Sunday (December 4, 2022). Polling will run from 8 am to 5 pm. And the counting of votes will take place on December 7.
