Supported cause of migrants in Delhi, demanded better facilities for them: Goel

Rajya Sabha MP and former Delhi BJP President Sh. Vijay Goel today said that he has always supported the cause of those who have migrated to Delhi from any part of the country. He expressed shock and dismay at the way his speech in Rajya Sabha has been distorted by certain vested interests.

Addressing a press conference today Sh. Goel said, "My stand has no this issue has been consistent. I have always maintained that those who have migrated to Delhi should be provided with all possible facilities required for a good quality life."

“In 5 lakh jhuggis in 1200 slums settlements more than 30 lakh people live in Delhi. Most of them are from other states . I said in my speech in Rajya Sabha that the people living in these areas should be provided with basic amenities.”

"I myself as well as the BJP has always supported the cause of migrants from other states in Delhi. Certain vested interests are unhappy with the growing popularity of BJP in Delhi and hence they are trying to create an unnecessary controversy by distorting facts. This is being done for petty political gains. It is deplorable," said Sh. Goel

Sh. Goel categorically said that in his speech on Delhi budget in Rajya Sabha on July 31, he did not oppose the migration of people from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar in Delhi.

Sh. Goel said, “My speech is available on Rajya Sabha’s official website and anyone can see that facts are being distorted. I clearly spoke in favour of more facilities for people from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh who are compelled to migrate to Delhi due to lack of opportunites at their native places.”

"Ï said students from UP and Bihar are compelled to come to Delhi in search of good colleges. I also mentioned in my speech that We should ensure that top colleges of Delhi University like SRCC, Hindu College and St. Stephens should operate on franchise model like Delhi Public School and open the branches of these colleges in various places in other parts of the country so that needy and poor students do not have to come all the way to Delhi.”

“I also said that the students who come to Delhi from any other states should be provided with hostel facility.  I have always maintained that four percent preference should be given in admission to colleges in Delhi for students who have passed out of Delhi.  Those students who belong to other states should also get this benefit if they have pass their class XII exams from any Delhi school. It doesn’t matter whether the student is from UP, Bihar,
Tamilnadu or Himachal Pradesh, the criteria should extend to students from all states if they are taking their senior secondary examination in Delhi.”

Sh. Goel said, “The fact is that I argued and demanded more facilities for JJ clusters, slums and unauthorized colonies where a large section of migrant population from other states is living. I also emphasized that NCR should be developed urgently to provide better living conditions to people from other states coming to Delhi in search of opportunities"
