SIO delegation led by Syed Azharuddin (national secretary SIO of India) met with Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and submitted a memorandum, seeking his intervention in development of the deprived locality.
“With his positive response we hope the CM will take quick action. The SIO welcomes steps taken by the Delhi Government in the field of education and health, especially career counseling for Class X, XII students of Government schools and 100 per cent fee waiver for students below poverty line. Also we welcome the move of SMREE (Smart + Free) scheme and Mohalla Clinics.
“Apart from all these initiatives we have following concerns, with respect to Okhla, Jamia Nagar area. Hope you will take necessary steps as soon as possible in public interest.
“1. All Jamia Nagar localities have dirty drains and face water logging during the monsoons because of the potholes.
“2. The conditions of roads are worst.
“3. No proper control over the traffic near Batla House and Okhla head area.
“4. No dumping yard in and around Jamia Nagar, even after authorities know about the conditions and they are unwilling to take necessary actions.
“We kindly request you to visit Abul Fazl Enclave,” said the SIO in its memorandum.
