“We have made a list of 15 issues and have appealed to all parties to highlight them in their manifestos. They should highlight issues that are associated directly with the public and should not have any vested interest,“ Vohra said.
In the letter, the RWAs have sought a solution and assurance from the political parties to take up the issues and put an end to them.
“The most important point that we want to highlight is that there should be coordination among different parties.It has been evident in the last two years how east Delhi has suffered when sanitation workers were not paid their salaries and instead of coming up with a solution, what followed was a blame game between BJP-led east corporation and AAP-led Delhi government,“ he said.
The public manifesto highlights issues like pollution, poor garbage collection, landfill fire, overflowing dhalaos, encroachment, parking, bad quality of roads, stray animals menace etc. Vohra pointed out that the issue of funds between civic bodies and Delhi government should be resolved and corruption in municipalities is a major cause of concern for the residents.
