A day after leading his party to a landslide victory in Delhi Assembly polls against the mighty Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief minister-designate Arvind Kejriwal today met Union Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu and discussed various issues with him including that of unauthorised colonies in the city and full statehood.

He was accompanied by Aam Aadmi Party leader Manish Sisodia.

“We have discussed four big issues with the minister. Firstly, the issues of the poor such as compensation for them, we will need central government’s help in that. Secondly, the issue of unauthorised colonies on which the Centre recently passed a resolution. So in order to take it forward help will be needed from MCD, DDA and the Centre,” Sisodia told reporters after the meeting.

“We told him that for more schools, colleges, hospitals and parking, a lot of land will be needed so whatever land is available with DDA, we have requested for it.

“And lastly the issue of full statehood. We have been fully assured that without any political divide we will get their support,” he added.

Kejriwal is slated to meet President Pranab Mukherjee and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh later in the day.

The Union Minister congratulated Kejriwal and Sisodia on their victory and also reminded them of the responsibility on their shoulders.

“AAP leaders Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia met me and discussed about regularisation of unauthorised colonies and other land-related issues. I congratulated them on the victory and reminded them of the great responsibility on their shoulders,” Naidu told reporters.

“I assured him that the Centre is willing to cooperate with the state and contribute to overall interest of people and development but the cooperation will depend on your operation. As the PM has given us guidance that we have to work as a team, we will help them as per the norms.

“If you perform well, we will extend all our support. There is no question of any political consideration whatsoever,” he said.

Kejriwal also extended an invitation to Naidu for the swearing-in ceremony on February 14 at Ramlila Maidan.

“He invited me but I have a prior commitment in Kolkata. I have a municipal commissioners meeting which was fixed a month back so I expressed my inability, otherwise I would have been happy to attend that,” said Naidu.

    The bill did not prevent land acquisition in . It just made the process more detailed. Sticking by the bill does not mean asking for ban on land acquiring.

        Sisodia has stated that they have requested for allotment of land for setting up schools, etc. It is really good. But Mr. Yogendra yadav has detailed the policy of AAP towards amendments to the Land Acquisition Act. AAP is opposed to any amendment to it. In that case how can they request for land as also oppose it on the other. There are many such contradictions which will tumble out as the days progress. As people of the country will not accept any alibi from Modi government for not delivering on its promises, the same is the case with AAP.

          Sorry pal.. Now DDA has only 200 acres of land available with it.. If AAP wants to build house all the poor people in Delhi that land will not be sufficient.. So DDA has to acquire land or else Delhi border should be extended.. even if borders are extended you need to acquire land to build house for every poor Delhi family..
