MLAs urged to expedite setting up of new solar energy plants

Special Correspondent

NEW DELHI: Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Tuesday called upon all MLAs to identify large buildings under their Assembly segments for setting up small solar energy plants and to suggest suitable sites for construction of parking lots.

Addressing the MLAs and senior officials at Delhi Secretariat on the second day of the interactive sessions organised to bring all legislators from given parliamentary constituencies face to face with officials from different departments, the Chief Minister said while additional power generated in the buildings would be supplied to the grid, the creation of parking lots would help addressing the issue of parking shortage.

The Chief Minister also told those present that the pension for 3.6 lakh beneficiaries had been released up to the month of December 2010 and credited into the respective accounts. She also directed the heads of all departments to keep the MLAs fully informed about the status of developmental works in their respective constituencies. During the day, six MLAs, including the Chief Minister and Health Minister, participated in the interactive session for New Delhi parliamentary constituency while eight attended the session for West Delhi constituency.

In the New Delhi constituency meeting, Neeraj Basoya of Kasturba Nagar proposed a multi-level parking each in South Extension Part-I and II. BJP MLA Subhash Sachdeva from Moti Nagar demanded sanction for a foot over-bridge near Punjabi Bagh crematorium across Ring Road.

Rajinder Nagar MLA Ramakant Goswami also demanded commissioning of FOBs and flyovers in his constituency. He also urged the setting up of a separate maintenance wing for both the Public Works Department and Municipal Corporation of Delhi. Congress chief whip in Delhi Assembly and Patel Nagar MLA Rajesh Lilothia raised the issues of shortage of staff in Food and Supplies Department circle offices and called for putting an end to leakage of water and undertaking of a de-silting drive of the drains Assembly-wise so that the MLAs remain fully cued to this work.

The interactive sessions for the South, North-West and Chandni Chowk parliamentary constituencies will be held over the next two days.
