Mr. Somesh Shokeen, MLA, Matiala has assured the Dwarka Forum to find out solution of various problems. Rejimon CK, President of the Forum told him that over 5 lakh residents of Dwarka are getting barely 3 MGD water at present. Shokeen said that though the water problem has improved from the last summer, yet much more is desired to be done and he will take up this matter with authorities. He said that after completion of the Munak Canal, Dwarka will get sufficient water from the canal. He said that ultimately, the distribution of water will be shifted to Delhi Jal board. Members also raised the question of renaming the Matiala Constituency as Dwarka and to bring the whole Dwarka under this and he was agreeable that there is some anomaly in naming this Constituency and he is open on this issue.
On Circular Bus Sewa, he said that for the success of this service, Forum should give suggestions to the Depot Manager and rework its route for making it more useful. On the early completion of the 750-bed Hospital, he said that being the government’s focus on the Common Wealth Games and shortage of funds, this might have been delayed. However, he will take up the matter with the Delhi Health Minister for its early completion.

President of the Forum, Rejimon suggested for Delhi Haat at Dwarka and some a separate authority for Dwarka on the line of separate development board for East Delhi. Somesh said that he is the Convener of South West District Board comprising Dwarka and the issues and problems concerning Dwarka can be brought to his knowledge. He assured that the subsidized wheat flour will be made available in Dwarka by selling it flour at some selected spots in Dwarka by mobile vans preferably on Saturdays.

Meeting was held at Gokul Garden, Sec 7, Dwarka today and was attended by the members of Dwarka Forum and other active residents.
