Highlights of speech made by Rajya Sabha MP Shri Vijay Goel in Parliament on Delhi Budget

Rajya Sabha MP and Former Union Minister Shri Vijay Goel today congratulated Finance Minister Shri Arun Jaitley for presenting a comprehensive budget for Delhi. In his address to Parliament on Delhi Budget, Mr. Goel reflected upon how much damage has been done in Delhi in the last 50-60 years that added a huge responsibility on the Finance Minister.
Demanding Statehood for Delhi, Shri Vijay Goel said that, “Delhi Development Authority, Police and Traffic Police should be under Delhi Government and the that security of important places can come under Central Government. 
He said that, ”Every year more than 6lakh people from Bihar, Uttar Pradesh come to Delhi in search of employment for them there should be such arrangements in the national capital that it doesn’t put additional burden on the resources in the city and they can also be benefitted.
“Students from states like Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar etc come to Delhi in search of admission in DU colleges. However, if prestigious institutions like SRCC, St. Stephens, Hindu open their branches in other states then students will not have to come to Delhi. We should open more hostels for students migrating from other states. Also, Students passing out class 12th from Delhi relating to any state should be given 4 percent relaxation in admission criteria in Delhi University” said Goel. 

Shri Vijay Goel said that, Congress gave lollipop to residents of unauthorized colonies in the name of Provisional certificates but didn’t regulate them.
However, the Finance Minister kept a provision to regularize unauthorized colonies for which he should form a committee and should begin work on the same immediately.

He lambasted Congress for making provisions and plans for residents of JJ clusters which could not be implemented due to rampant corruptions in their tenure.
Reflecting on power distribution crisis in Delhi Mr. Goel said that, “Delhi needs atleast four more power distribution companies in Delhi to reduce monopoly and competition amongst them will benefit the public. Delhi just doesn’t need 30 percent subsidy only, but our aim should be to get power from these companies at lower costs”
He also said Delhi should be declared World Heritage City. We should initiate conservation projects of Delhi’s heritage monuments which can be further promoted for tourism purpose.
