MCD polls 2017: What it means for Okhla residents

The date of civic polls in Delhi has been announced and it is on April 22, writes Ashraf Razi.

And Okhla has gone hyper active with posters and hoardings surfacing everywhere with candidates making tall claims of developing the locality if voted to power in the polls. In such a situation the million dollar question is: whom to vote and whom to trust during the polls?

This is not for the first time that such claims are being made by politicians. Residents remember that for the last many years new faces surface during election time claiming to address all the issue. This happened two years ago also during the Assembly election. But on the ground very little has changed in Okhla that continues to be a deprived locality lacking basic amenities.

In such a situation it is really a tough task for voters to elect the right candidate, who is honest, educated and sincere towards addressing the local developmental issue. Make sure to ask a few questions from him or her when s/he visits your house for seeking support. Find out his or her background so that like the past we don’t up getting up a wrong person, who does nothing save giving lip service and raising emotional issues.

This time people should vote wisely and choose better candidate who would work for the betterment of the locality.

Delhi MCD consists of three bodies namely South, East and North Delhi Municipal Corporations and the upcoming elections are going to decide the fate of 272 councillors. The AAP, Congress and BJP are in the fray with the BJP trying hard to retain its 10 years domination of the civic agencies.
