BJP to hold meets in all constituencies to thank PM

Party to express gratitude for move to regularise unauthorised colonies in Delhi

The BJP will hold public meetings in all 70 Assembly constituencies in the Capital to thank Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the Centre’s decision to regularise unauthorised colonies in Delhi, the party said here on Wednesday.

Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari announced the decision at a public meeting at Lavkush Chowk in Badarpur where he also announced the party’s resolve to work “five times more” than the AAP government, after coming to power in Delhi.

“The Prime Minister has solved the greatest problem being faced by the people since 1977. There was always a chance that these colonies might either be demolished or the people would have to pay hefty charges for continuing here,” the North East Delhi MP said.

“Their houses will not be demolished but registered in their names and they will be charged a minimum amount. Now these people may be able to get loans for education of their children or to start a business. In the winter session of Parliament a law will be passed in this regard and the people of the unauthorised colonies will start getting ownership rights,” Mr. Tiwari announced.

Within a 100 days of its second term, Mr. Tiwari said, the Modi government took the “historical decision” to regularise unauthorised colonies as a “Deepawali gift to lakhs of people”.

While for 15 years, the Congress had misled the people of Delhi and AAP “did not expedite” its efforts in this regard, the BJP had “done what it had promised”.

“The people of Delhi have awakened and they are not going to be misled by the false claims of Kejriwal. They very well know which party unites the people and which party believes in politics of dividing the society,” Mr. Tiwari argued.

“After coming to power BJP will first of all improve the public transport system of Delhi by introducing electric buses so that people may not have to wait for long. After coming to power, the BJP will work five times more than AAP nad serve the people of Delhi,” he added.
