LoP received ‘overwhelming response’ from residents: party

A day after the BJP-led Centre announced its decision to regularise unauthorised colonies in Delhi, Minister of State Affairs Nityanand Rai visited one such colony – Raja Vihar — in Rohini to interact and obtain feedback from residents.

He was accompanied by North West Delhi MP Hansraj Hans and Leader of Opposition and Rohini legislator Vijender Gupta who, received “overwhelming response” from local residents, the party said.

“The enthusiasm of the Raja Vihar residents is an indication that they are happy regarding the Centre’s decision. The Centre will leave no stone unturned in ensuring that the process of regularisation and giving ownership rights starts at the earliest,” Mr. Rai said.

Mr. Hans assured the residents that he would “liberally invest” his MP fund in providing civic facilities in unauthorised colonies.

New district office

Meanwhile, the party inaugurated its North West district office where scores of its members were in attendance.

“The BJP laid the foundation of the new district office considering the right place for karyakartas to work. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party national president Amit Shah believes that unless the karyakarta of the organisation becomes strong, then it is difficult to strengthen the organisation,” Mr. Rai said.

In a related development, the party's State unit chief and North East Delhi MP Manoj Tiwari was scheduled to spend a night at one such colony to gather feedback on the government's decision — at Shashi Garden located in the Patparganj Assembly constituency — on Thursday evening.
