New Delhi: In an embarrassment to the Delhi government, AAP legislator Manoj Kumar was on Thursday arrested on charges of cheating and forgery, police said.
Manoj Kumar, elected from Kondli, was taken into custody in a case of alleged land grab.
He has seven cases against him, including one of assault, a police officer told IANS.
Manoj Kumar is among the 21 Aam Aadmi Party legislators against whom Delhi Police have reportedly decided to file chargesheets in connection with criminal cases registered against them in the national capital.
These 21 include Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who faces three cases, as well as Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and Speaker Ram Niwas Goel. (IANS)
People living in Delhi can now avail 30 more services at their doorstep, including adding members in ration card, paying the motor vehicle tax and getting a DTC pass, taking the total number of such services to 70. The second phase of the doorstep delivery of public services, the official launch of which is yet to take place, has been rolled out.
Residents can dial 1076 and get the service by paying Rs 50 extra, an official from Delhi’s Administrative Reforms told IANS. The new services include booking a tour package through Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corp.
In September 2018, the Delhi government had launched the doorstep delivery of 40 public services to make things easy for the common man. In the first phase, people got certificates of marriage, caste, domicile, income, births and deaths among others at their doors.
Driving license, new water or sewer connection and disconnection were also provided under the scheme which functions between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. through a ‘Mobile Sahayak’. The government had planned to roll out more services by February but they got delayed.
“Once the second phase is on track, steps to start the third phase will be initiated,” the official said. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has plans to have at least 100 services delivered at people’s doorsteps, the official said.
Aam Aadmi Party leader Atishi told IANS: “The plan initially was to take things online but we realised that people find it more easy to call a number and get the services instead of doing things online.” The tenure of the Kejriwal government will end on February 2020. (IANS)
