The Delhi Congress on Sunday held a ‘pratigya’ rally as a part of its ‘Jawab Do, Hisab Do’ campaign against the BJP government at the Centre and its seven MPs from Delhi.
Scores of Congress leaders and workers gathered at the Hathi Wala Chowk in Karol Bagh and raised slogans against the central government at the rally led by Delhi Congress president Arvinder Singh Lovely.
Senior Congress leader Ajay Maken and All India Congress Committee In-charge of Delhi Deepak Babaria were also present at the rally.
Congress Treasurer Ajay Maken, while addressing a Vishal Pratigya Rally as part of Delhi Congress’ “Jawab Do-Hissab Do” campaign at Hathi Wala Chowk in Karo Bagh area said, “Had not the Congress government passed the Special Protection Act-2006, over 30 lakh people, including shopkeepers, small, medium and middle traders would have been rendered jobless.”
Maken, a former Union Minister, said that to provide relief to the people of Delhi, the Congress government had made amendments to the Master Plan-2021 in September 2013 to notify mixed use of 2183 roads, but the present Central and Delhi governments have not provided any facilities in these areas till now. Maken said that in 2012, the Congress government had declared 70 per cent of areas with industries as industrial areas but no development works have been carried out in such places.
The Congress leader said that out of the existing industrial complexes, 20 were established by the Congress government, and plans for another five had also been approved by the Congress government, but only notified by the present government.
