BJP gears up to raise FDI in Assembly

NEW DELHI, Dec 7, 2012, DHNS: 2:04 IST

Session begins on Tuesday

The BJP MLAs on Friday demanded a debate on the issue of foreign direct investment in the forthcoming Assembly session.

The BJP legislative party met under the chairmanship of leader of opposition in Delhi Assembly Vijay Kumar Malhotra to decide the party’s strategy for the four-day session, which begins on Tuesday.

The Bharatiya Janta Party has listed 31 issues for discussion. “Delhi is in the grip of various problems and the city government led by Sheila Dikshit has utterly failed to solve them,” said Malhotra.

He added that notices have been issued to the Speaker for debate on issues like increase in electricity and water charges, and black marketing of LPG cylinders.

Malhotra said the party intends to take up the issue of development work in unauthorised colonies where people are “forced to live in hell-like conditions though these areas got provisionalregularisation certificate five years ago.”

The party also demands debate on non-availability of essential commodities such as foodgrain, kerosene oil to various categories of ration card holders can also be discussed.
“The government has not stamped more than 15 lakh ration cards,” said Malhotra. Thus, preventing them from enjoying facilities that they are entitled to, he added. “The government has no answer for this.”

Malhotra said the BJP will also initiate a debate for strengthening the office of Lokayukta.
An effective and strong Lokayukta is important to check “rampant corruption in all the departments,” including the office of chief minister, he added.

Increase in crime and pollution in Yamuna are also on the BJP’s agenda.
