Kalkaji MLA plans to improve schools' condition

In Kalkaji constituency, MLA Avtar Singh plans to focus on improving the overall condition of government schools in the area.

After visiting a few government schools in his constituency, the unsanitary conditions in the schools is a major concern, the MLA has realised.

“The loos in the schools are not in good shape. I have visited a few schools till now. The condition of the toilets need improvement,” says Singh.

Singh, who has served as the chairperson of a school for several years, can identify the changes required in the education sector.

Improved infrastructure in these schools would help attract more number of children to these schools, he says.

Singh has also contested the Delhi Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee elections later successfully.
A resident of the constituency, he is taking written complaints from people in the area to fast-track changes here.

“The maximum number of complaints that I have received is on sewer lines. The constituency needs better sewer lines across areas. In some parts of the constituency, water supply is also a major problem,” says Singh.

“We are first working on sewer line-related issues before moving on to other projects,” he adds.

With regard to women’s safety, the MLA has identified the transit camps in Govindpuri, Sriniwaspuri and some parts of Kalkaji as the most sensitive areas till now. CCTV cameras will be installed in these areas first.

“We have surveyed areas and talks are on with the concerned company to install CCTV cameras in these areas. Installation of CCTV cameras will be carried out in a phased manner. Other areas where installation of these cameras is necessary will also be identified soon.”

The constituency which spans Greater Kailash, Ishwar Nagar, Shyam Nagar, Giri Nagar, Kalkaji, Govindpuri, Sukhdev Vihar and Ishwar Nagar, among other places sees a considerable number of Gramin Sewa autorickshaws plying. However, with these autorickshaws stopping at small intervals to pick up passengers, it often contributes to the traffic congestion.

The stretch from Govindpuri to Sukhdev Vihar is a nightmare for commuters with the traffic in a chaotic condition here.

“The Gramin Sewa autorickshaw drivers will be sensitised to follow traffic rules. Even though there are no designated stops for these vehicles,  they have to at least park in corners to not add to the congestion,” says Singh.

“The police will also be responsible to see buses do not pick up passengers in-between stops,” he adds.
