Reiterating their demand to resolve civic issues plaguing the sub-city, members of residents welfare associations (RWAs), managing committees of societies and several social organisations interacted with Rajya Sabha MP, Vijay Goel at Deen Dayal Upadhyay College (Sector 3), Dwarka on Sunday.
The interaction was part of a program titled 'Vision for Delhi', in which problems related to Cooperative Group Housing Societies (CGHS) and other key issues were raised by the people of the area to the member of parliament.

Besides, residents pointed out delay in work of golf course, football stadium, sports complex, etc. The subject of 'single window system' for the sub-city to deal with the civic issues and to bring the entire area under one assembly was also raised by the people.
They stressed saying that there must a concept of 'Unified Dwarka' which should also include the entire part of Sector 1,2,7,8,9 etc.
Talking to City Spidey in this regard, general secretary of Federation of CGHS Sudha Sinha said, "We have demanded to make Dwarka Assembly Constituency in place of Patiala by redefining the delimitation of the area."
She also apprised about the present situation following the imposition of tax for common areas within the societies.
Apart from policy matters, residents were of the view that sanitary conditions should be bettered in order to make the area one of the best amongst others.

After listening to the residents' woes, MP Vijay Goel assured them that he would take up their issues with the authorities concerned. He concluded saying that people should come forward and raise their voice if the authorities and the government are failing to address their problems.
