Delhi BJP chief Vijay Goel issued a ‘political chargesheet’ against Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Tuesday,alleging that there is no governance in the capital. He said the President should remove the Delhi government.

“If the President,on receipt of a report from the Lieutenant-Governor,or otherwise,is satisfied that a situation has arisen in which the administration of the National Capital Territory cannot be carried on in accordance with the provisions of Article 239AA or of any law made in pursuance of that article or that for the proper administration of the National Capital Territory it is necessary,the government can be sacked,” Goel said.

Goel alleged that Delhi is forced to bear the shameful tag of ‘rape capital’ and that there is a complete lack of accountability. “This chargesheet shows that from law and order to power,water,sewage,health and social sector schemes,the Delhi government has proved to be a disaster on all fronts. Hence we demand immediate dismissal of this government,” Goel said.

“Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde recently said Sheila Dikshit had never asked for Delhi Police to be brought under the purview of the state government,” Goel said.

He said a delegation of the BJP leaders would meet the President to demand sacking of Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit and her government.

Goel gave some statistics to back his claims.

“Among 53 cities,Delhi,with 4,489 cases,accounts for 13.3 per cent of crimes against women. Waomen-centric policing in the city is almost absent. Shockingly,of the 161 district police stations in Delhi,only one (Maurice Nagar in North Campus) has a woman station house officer (SHO),according to data till December 2012.

There are 4,809 women officers of various ranks,ranging from constables to inspectors. Delhi Police statistics reveal that there are 72 women inspectors — the rank at which they are made SHOs. Most women officers are posted at the women help desks in police stations,as PSOs to VIPs’ wives and children or at the 3rd battalion to escort prisoners from the jail to the court and back,” Goel said.

Goel alleged irregularities in the Ladli scheme. “Many of the Ladli beneficiaries were automatically dropped from the scheme after their policies were not renewed. Due to absence of monitoring,the scheme failed to support 42 per cent of the beneficiaries who had enrolled for the scheme but did not renew it,” Goel alleged.

He also listed other issues such as power and transport,where he said accountability has not been fixed.
