Vision for Delhi

Vision for Delhi 

“What we want is vigor in the blood, strength in the nerves, iron muscles and nerves of steel, not softening namby-pamby ideas.”
My vision for Delhi stems from these inspiring words of Swami Vivekananda. Delhi has enough number of bold men and women; there is no dearth of talented and hard-working people. What we need is a vision backed with good intent and sound policies.
My vision for Delhi is that it should be a city of opportunities where people realize their dreams, women feel safe to go out, kids enjoy their childhood, elderly citizens don’t feel vulnerable and different sections of the society get equal rights. A city where public utilities are affordable and world-class quality. The national capital of a country like India should be a mix of our cultural heritage and modern technological might.
We need a model city which has universal education, health services, housing, power, water, and public transport. We must strive to make Delhi an environment-friendly metro where we use renewable sources of energy in our daily lives, and where at least one-third of the city is under forest which in fact act as the ‘lungs’ of Delhi. If we don’t do this, the city will continue to die a slow death as it is happening today. This must be changed with utmost urgency. 
I want Delhi to be a child-friendly city where children from all classes and sections of society get equal opportunities. It has to be a city where the public distribution system (PDS) works for the marginalized, and, for those who are not covered under it, the government must establish “Super Bazaars” to provide the basic commodities at reasonable prices. And this can be easily done through the PPP model.
The mantra for making Delhi the best city in the world is “Accountable Governance, Participatory Governance, and Sensitive Governance.”  There is an urgent need to induct professionals and experts in government at various levels. There must be extensive use of technology to implement e-governance to weed out corruption and bring in transparency and efficiency at all levels. It also helps to significantly reduce the administrative costs. The grievance redressal mechanism of all government departments should address all complaints in a time-bound manner.
Delhi has the potential of becoming one of the most attractive art and culture hubs. And for that, the Delhi government has to play an important role in setting up, nurturing, supporting and promoting world-class art and cultural organizations.
Delhi has a burgeoning population youth. There is an urgent need for expanding education opportunities at all levels for them. But that would only be the first step. We need to integrate skill development in our curriculum of higher education. The entrepreneurial skills of Delhi residents are well known; it is time we harness them. The government needs to support young entrepreneurs by incubating their projects.
Delhi currently has islands of affluence surrounded by chaos and anarchy. The urban planning in Delhi is virtually non-existent. Result? Mushrooming of unauthorized colonies, JJ clusters, and slums! With political will and a vision, we can change the landscape of Delhi by providing affordable housing and public utilities to those for whom this city holds a bright future.
