Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today visited Joga Bai as announced earlier to inaugurate a transformer in the locality so as residents don’t face power woes anymore. He arrived in the locality from Jamia Millia Islamia route to Batla House, getting a rousing welcome from his supporters and party workers who had gathered there.
After inaugurating the huge transformer, Arvind Kejriwal could have taken the same route to his office in Delhi. However, sources said the CM took the different route, via Okhla Head to Abul Fazal Enclave. This was the route that many OT reads had asked for when the story was carried by the portal on Wednesday. In most of the posts, readers said Kejriwal should visit the locality so that he could have a feel of the problems being faced by the residents.
At about 5:45 pm, many residents in Abul Fazal Enclave saw the CM going out with his entourage being followed by security guards and being led from the front from AAP workers on bikes. “I was taken aback by the crowd outside my street in Azad Road. I saw Arvind Kejriwal sitting in his vehicle. Several security men were also there. It was good to see him travelling on this route. It appears that very soon some positive thing will take place and the road could be repaired soon,” said a resident.
The repairing of the road is important as several potholes have surfaced after rain. Moreover, residents are deeply upset as waterlogging has become a routine thing on these roads and there are fears that this could lead to breeding of mosquitoes at a time when reports are coming of several cases of dengue, malaria and chikungunya being happening in the city. Residents remember how many people had died due to dengue last year.
