listen to the news
The noise of election campaign for the Delhi Municipal Corporation elections (Delhi MCD Election 2022) stopped at 5 pm on Friday evening. Voting for the Municipal Corporation of Delhi will be held on Sunday, December 4. With the declaration of election results on December 7, it will be known that on which party the people of Delhi have expressed their trust to maintain the basic system of the city. Any party may win the municipal elections, but keeping in mind the long-term impact of these elections, BJP, Aam Aadmi Party and Congress, all three have put their full efforts.
The BJP has given all its strength to ensure victory in the municipal elections. The party has thrown the Chief Ministers of Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Assam and Madhya Pradesh and dozens of Union Ministers like Anurag Thakur, Piyush Goyal, Hardeep Singh Puri into the election campaign and told that for it the election of Municipal Corporation is not less in any way. . However, this time BJP’s top leader Amit Shah and big star campaigner Yogi Adityanath stayed away from BJP’s election campaign. Yogi Adityanath’s absence from the election campaign is not being said to be good for the party because it is believed that in the last Municipal Corporation election, he had changed the electoral wind of Delhi with his aggressive election campaign and BJP was successful in scoring a hat-trick of victory. Was staying
Whom to trust for victory?
The BJP has more faith in the charisma of the central leadership of the party than in its work to win the municipal corporation. The party feels that the monthly ration being given to the poor by the central government, the help given to the people during the Corona period, the financial assistance given to the farmers and women through various schemes and the 3024 slum-dwellers of Delhi by PM Modi. The house given to poor families will be effective in helping him win. The party has declared that if it comes to power, it will give a pucca house to every slum-dwelling family. Since, he has also given houses to 3024 poor families, this bet is making him popular among the poor people. The BJP has also tried to reach out to the poor by making a slum dweller its corporator candidate.
here are the challenges
But the BJP is facing a tough challenge from the alleged corruption in the municipal corporation. Lack of proper arrangement of cleanliness in the city has proved to be a big failure for him. In the matter of not being able to pay the salary to the cleaning staff, he was also very angry. The BJP has been blaming the Delhi government for this, but in these elections it has to answer these questions of the public as well.
The Delhi government’s free electricity, water and health facilities are still popular among poor voters, so its biggest challenge is likely to be found in about 50 slum-dominated seats. For the poor people living in these areas, the exemption of 200 units in the electricity bill every month, the exemption in transport fare for women and the financial assistance received in various schemes are of great financial help. This is the reason that since the 2015 assembly elections, these areas have been captured by the Aam Aadmi Party. The Aam Aadmi Party and the Congress also claim more than two dozen Muslim-majority seats in the capital. A decision has to be taken here on the issue of how much the housing scheme given by the central government to the slum dwellers can break this vote bank from Kejriwal.
