Question: Should Delihites pay for Commonwealth Games 2010?
This question arise by Abhigyan Prakash on News Point@NDTV on 23rd March 2010 and very next morning when Delhi Govt. has been floored the State Budget 2010-2011 in Delhi Legislative Assembly. If looked the budget at lightly way than anybody can understand the budget is not for General People. All necessarily goods has been increased by VAT for example Diesel, LPG, CNG, Cold Drinks, Tea, Cofee, Desi Ghee, Dry Fruits, Household Plasic Goods, Utensils, Cutlery, Locks, Furniture, Wire & Metal mesh, Glucose D, Kerosene Stoves, Lanterns, Petromax & their spares. I have mentioned those items which effect the pocket of Genral People and these are necessity of general people. But after looking extensively on budget this will not constraint on selected items. If diesel prices will hike than lot of grocery item’s price will automatically increase because of transportation charge will increase as well.
In last two-three days Honourable CM said that you are always asking about price hike but not talking about salary hikes. How many people are working on salary basis or doing some job. Suppose if the salaried people gets hike than our CM should also know the last year’s recession and
how many people lost their job as well, but if among them some of survived well than how much they get hike in their salary. Current year is also not going well for unorganised sector as well.
Our honourable CM is saying if we should live in world class city than we have to pay for that. Is Delhi is world class City? I don’t think our CM don’t know what is the definition and what are the basic amenaties are mandatory for world class city. Is our CM is talking about Lutien’s Delhi than I don’t think it will pass the basic criteria for being a world class city. Just look some the place and think twice and thrice over that Delhi is world class City or not for example: Trilokpuri, Kalyanpuri, Mangolpuri, KarawalNagar, NandNagri, InderPuri, Babarpur Khajuri, Bhajanpura, Nathupura, Burari, Sonia Vihar, Jhilmil, Vikas Nagar, Palam Colony etc can say the status of world class City. If you are talking about Delhi than it is not all about Lutien’s Delhi, it is all about including the places mentioned above as well. So you have take care about all the places the same eye. One more than thing that is strange that honourable finance minister of Delhi is also coming from East Delhi, Where the most of general people are living. If we have not forgetten about the CM’s prior statement that East Delhi is bad portion of Delhi’s world class map. And finance minister nothing has to do, because they don’t know how the money is coming from in common man’s pocket. They say that they will review the VAT. But one thing nobody knows that this is the govt. policy that increase the price and roll-back of least of percentage. But ultimately the govt will be in profit for example if any item’s VAT has been increased from 5% to 12.5% than if they will roll back by 2.5% than what will happen the govt is in 5% profit. So this is the logic to be in NewsPaper and also said to be that they are thinking about the common people.
At the end of this point, I can ask the question that suggest from your side that what will be the best budget for common people. I am not the people who can do that there are lot of people who are doing this better. So they will have to know that by you people.
