“I visited the flats in Bawana, which are in a good condition but lack basic facilities. For instance, there is no proper connectivity, water supply, etc. A re-think on this policy is needed because a person living in a slum area in Kalkaji will not be ready to shift to Bawana, where basic facilities are not available,” Sisodia said.
These flats were constructed by the Sheila government. Around 2,000 of the 14,000 flats have been allotted. The construction was taken up in 2008 and completed in 2011. The rest are yet to be allotted.

The government is supposed to construct at least 50,000 such houses across the city in areas such as Dwarka and Narela. The Aam Aadmi Party had earlier said it would not take up demolition of any slum cluster in the city without relocation of the residents.
Kejriwal had promised that no slum would be demolished till there is a solution to the issue. “No slum will be demolished till a permanent solution is found. If we demolish them, they will come up elsewhere as people have no place else to go. Since the issue has been raised by a lot of you (MLAs), we need to work together,” he said.
