    I am a Delhiite, born and educated in Delhi and aged 48 yrs, my family has been in Delhi evem before first muslims came to delhi. Pls do not teach me about Delhi. If you have any brains in you, you will realise that even AAP has accepted that 50% of delhi does not have access to tap water as those are illigal colonies and they survive on tankers only. So how are you going to change that? Tankers are a reality and how will you stop that so called tanker mafia which you so vociforously advertised as a mafia?
    AAP has taken support of Congress and it is this congress which is responsible for these illigal colonies and these parasites of humanity shud have no right to vote or decide the future of those who pay taxes. AAP is a parasite like the people the people they claim to represent.

    Please no personal Attack your better then that ...

    coming back to your point i totally disagree with your veiw point ...
    i come from mumbai and i know how illegal land Grabbing puts pressure on the system ...but why are you attacking AAP ??? surely AAP did not help in this ..
    If cong was in power why was BJP silent all this while .... If bjp is such a saint why they dint raise this issue of illegal land grab ?? i tell you Why cuz BJP is as much responsible as CONG is for this ...

    every where in the country there is a nexus between Builders-Mafia-Politicians it happens in mumbai too
    and there is a understanding between all party lines for this thats why no one raises any objections ...

    And now if AAP is going to Regularize these colonies then what are the benefits ?? if these colonies dont get recognition will they cease to Exist ? NO ..then what is the solution ? get them in the main stream and start taxing them just like any other resident ...and if these construction were illegal .there should be a commision to enquire in to things and arrest who ever is guilty ...but dont punish those people who have been duped .

    i live in mira bhyander area of mumbai ... just few years back i was proud to say that this was the only place in mumbai where there were no slums .. but right now i can find plenty ..my maid lives in one of those slums ..

    and she explained to me about the system .... there is a builder who owns the land ...the builder gives out this land to the local goons ..who have ties with the politicians ...on the land the Mafia will allow the poor people to build slums ..and suprisingly they also have electricity .politicians provide them with cover ...now this goons charge around 3000-5000rs for each Hut depending on the area its in ..
    that money is divided between the goons-builder=politicians ..... however sometimes the BMC comes and destroys these huts ..those times when BMC needs money lol .... so u see every1 is in it ....
    only the poor people suffer ....i have asked my maid many times why doesnt she just rents a flat ...
    she says cuz of poor documentation ...she only has a BC to show and a Ration card which is from kolkutta ....

    They're all idiots. There's no point telling them anything. They don't even contemplate that there's foreign funded media, fake grassroots movements, donations are for activities that destabilize the region and not to help, etc. You'll just waste your time. The last strong leader we had was Indira who stopped CIA fundings to NGOs. Even if she's from Congress, only she had the mind mind needed to take stern action and also the mind to suspect.

    To all those people who think people like freebies and subsidies I request them to go through the post on the following link


    The Heartland Secrets: What women want? | Five Forty Three

    I really believe that rather than subsidies and freebies people want to pay and get best services

    lets take the free water scenario in Delhi

    1. This water is available only to some areas, and to people having meters on water connection

    so effectively this is being provided to 25% of the people

    2. The really needy people who should be given freebies i.e. poor people are out of this scheme because they dont have metered connections, they dont live in authorised colonies, they live in slums etc etc so the really needy people are out of this scheme

    3. When I didnt know the whole story i too was very excited about the free water scheme but then after the announcement on tv - the tv shows actually showed what was being charged and what people saved -

    84 Rs for an household with area less than 200 sq meters
    162 Rs for an household with area more than 200 sq meters

    but when i came too know these figures i simply said wtf

    now just imagine - people making such a fuss over a 100 - 200 rupees a month bill

    i think this is craziness

    now about electricity tariffs

    subsidy is not the way

    about CAG audit - why do you need CAG to audit energy firms it cane by done by Delhi Govt also and is anything fishy is found it can be raised to CAG / or other legel mechanism

    Also if the delhi govt wants to scrutinse the electricity company books they do not need permission from electricity co, the delhi govt holds 49% equity in all the firms they can easily do so why this show ?

    Also if these steps are taken by AAP to show its fulfillment of its election promises i think i will fail them on those

    because AAP has shown that they are no different from other parties

    1. what they have said in the elecltion manifestos is half truth - when you say 700 litre of free water it means - 700 litre free + charges over and above 700 for more usage

    now what AAP has done is we are giving 700 l free but you use more and there goes the benefit ( they can technically claim that they have fulfilled thier election promise and that in thier election manifesto they had said anything about higher consumption or how the higher consumption will be billed)

    2. About electricity too the same goes - they had promised 50% reduction in tariffs they had spoken of any slab based reductions in their election manifesto ( still they could technically claim that they had not specified any slabs in manifesto and that they have given slab based reductions)

    3. About electricity tariffs they had maintained that it could be achieved without subsidy by preventing corruption of power companies. so whay have they resorted to subsidy mechanism - why not expose stop and punish corrupt practises.

    4. Supplying free water to limited households is really not fair to the public of delhi who has been left out. AAP has said that there are problems like distribution systems etc etc, so were they not aware about his issues at the time of promising the same to the people (they have always maintianed that all things promised by them have been studied by experts and found to be deliverable if so then hhow come now they find it undeliverable )

    So looking at this what does a common man (AAM ADAMI) lime me feel

    i feel that AAP is no different than congress and BJP. AAP has been a party who has been promising the moon and saying HALF TRUTHS in its manifesto

    so what will the people of delhi who have been left out of 700l free water and 50% reduction in tariffs think about AAP and whom they will support and vote in May 2014

    Brilliant Idea actually as such he has done something which partly suits his position with providing water to Delhiites and not getting burnt more.

    Wondering where were these conditions before when he made promises.... Jus cant believe he is too a typical politician.
