Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Chandigarh unit today blasted the Administrator, UT officials the local MP, Kirron Kher & BJP leadership for their lackadaisical attitude, which has led to Chandigarh ranking slipping to 29th position in Ease of Living Index 2020.
AAP senior leader, Chander Mukhi Sharma said some of the Chandigarh Administration officials, including the Administrator and even the local MP, Kirron Kher seem to be using their position for rest and recreation as they have failed to do justice to the wellbeing of the city. He also blamed the Congress leaders for not having been able to work for the betterment of city during their rule.
Chander Mukhi Sharma said, AAP demands, except police everything should be in the control of Municipal Corporation. It should become a genuine City Government.
“There is complete adhocism in the functioning of the Chandigarh Administration, as there is no coordination between the Chandigarh Administration and Municipal Corporation and are banking on nothing but blame game. Things are not changed overnight and systems have to be in place”, he said.
Sharma said, some of the handpicked officers of the Administrator and the MP are mere puppets, who are not thinking about the betterment of city.
From the fifth most livable city in 2018, Chandigarh, which was the 5th most liveable city in 2018, is now placed at 29th position out of 49 cities with million plus population on the Ease of Living Index 2020, released by the Union ministry of housing and urban affairs on Thursday. The index is an assessment tool that evaluates the quality of life and the impact of various initiatives for urban development. The BJP has completely failed to Govern the city.
