Tablighi Jamaat can’t explain mischief of members after leaving Delhi

While describing the 'difficulty' it faced to transport people out of Delhi, Tablighi Jamaat fails to explain why its associates and affiliates either mingled with people in their respective villages and why many of them just vanished in thin air

New Delhi: The AAP government will again send its proposal for the ambitious ‘doorstep delivery of services scheme’ to Lt Governor Anil Baijal for approval, with a detailed reply to each objection raised by him, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has said.

The scheme is currently at the centre of the tussle between the L-G and the Delhi government with Deputy Chief Minister asking Baijal if he was trying to “protect” the corrupt system by the opposing the proposal.

The chief minister also directed the food department to immediately implement the plan.

Recently, Baijal had returned the proposal to the Delhi government asking to reconsider it and raised several objections, including safety of citizens and corruption.

“We will again send the doorstep delivery proposal to the Lt Governor with detailed replies to all objections in the next few days,” Kejriwal said.

He said that the government is currently preparing a response to the L-G’s objections, adding that the proposal was good for Delhiites.

“Approved Doorstep Delivery of Rations. Overruled all objections to the proposal. Directed Food Dept to start its implementation immediately,” Kejriwal said on Twitter.

“Directed dept to keep me informed of daily progress,” he added in another tweet.

Under the proposal, government wants to provide 40 services at the doorstep of citizens, including driving licence, ration cards, caste certificates among others.

In his objections, Baijal had said the present proposal had implications on safety and security of women and senior citizens, privacy, loss of documents, and it added unnecessary expenditure for the government and the people.

To the government’s comparison of the scheme with pizza delivery at the doorstep of citizens, the L-G had said “Pizza, unlike documents, cannot be downloaded”.

Replying to the L-G’s pizza remark, the deputy chief minister had said that just like “pizza cannot be downloaded online, a human being seeking a certificate cannot be uploaded and sent to a government office for verification”.
