Maheish Girri
East Delhi
Within three months, I am going to form a committee to come up with solutions for the problems faced by residents of East Delhi. We will also focus on small-scale industries to generate employment. I will address the issue of unemployment on a priority basis. Women should feel safe in the city and we will take steps towards that.

West Delhi
Shortage of water is a major problem in my constituency. We have promised the voters that we will address this soon. We cannot sit on it like the Congress did.

Udit Raj
North-west Delhi
Authorisation of resettlement colonies and providing permanent housing to the poor remains my foremost priority. Improving transportation services in the constituency is another important goal. I will improve the law and order situation in the area, besides ensuring regular supply of clean water.

Manoj Tiwari
North-east Delhi
I plan to spend the next 10 days with the public to gauge the problems in the constituency. I am a first-time MP, so I don’t know how things are done. I also want to improve the the traffic situation in the constituency. There are many issues in this area — lack of clean water, playgrounds, schools and hospitals. I plan to set up a ‘communication office’ in each of the 10 Assembly constituencies to ask people what they want addressed first. Accordingly, I will make a plan and solve the continued…
