No Landfill on the banks of Yamuna, Find another site.

Our drinking water will be poisoned if we don’t act now. The East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) is planning to build TWO landfills on the banks of the Yamuna - one at Sonia Vihar (150 acres) and another one at Ghonda Gujran (50 acres), both in active floodplains. This is the most dangerous place to build a landfill. Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) has given a nod to the proposal, ignoring several laws such as the Water Act, 1974, The Environment Protection Act, 1986, the Waste Management Rules, 2016, The Ganga Authority Notification 2016, The NGT judgment dated January 13, 2015, in Maily se Nirmal Yamuna case, the DDA Act and The Zonal Plan for Zone O (river zone). Delhi Development Authority has finally allotted the land to EDMC too. Garbage, toxins & heavy metals will flow directly from this landfill into the Yamuna. These toxins will enter our drinking water creating a health crisis.   The Yamuna bank is an active floodplain which drains directly into the river. The area is also highly unstable with seismic activity. Any toxins stored on the banks will spill into the river and poison it. From the Yamuna, the toxins will enter Delhi’s groundwater and water supply, also the fact that the water table is high in these areas and therefore toxic leachate from the landfills is going to pollute the underground aquifers for all times. The water coming to our homes will become dangerous for us to use or consume. We need to make sure this landfill does not come up on the Yamuna banks. The landfill must be shifted to a safer site far away from our water supply. Once the Landfill is built the damage will be done. It will be a bureaucratic nightmare to implement safety measures or shut it down and reverse the damage. We must show the authorities right away that there is massive public opposition to building a landfill on the Yamuna banks.   We must unite now to protect the Yamuna, our water and our health.

Commit to Clearing Up Ghazipur Landfill #CleanTheMess

Every Indian dreams of a house with a view of the mountains. But the view we have every single day is nothing less than a nightmare. We live in a skyscraper overlooking the Mount Everest of garbage dumps: Ghazipur, a massive landfill where all of Delhi’s garbage gets dumped. One news article we read says the landfill is spread as wide as 29 football fields and is nearly as high as the Qutab Minar. While the Qutab Minar is a breathtaking monument, the towers of trash at Ghazipur are making residents in surrounding areas like us gag and hold our breath. The stench of rotting waste is releasing poisonous gases making everyone sick. We can’t even open our windows without vomiting. The toxic air has ruined our air purifiers and caused pipe leakages. Think of what it is doing to our bodies. It’s been 17 years since Ghazipur ran out of space and should have been shut down but the trucks continue to dump waste there. Two years ago, a part of this landfill collapsed, killing 2 people. And still no action. How can a mountain of garbage of such great proportions be invisible to our civic authorities. Save us from this ticking time bomb. We have started this petition because we are sick of falling sick. We are sick of the inaction by authorities. We had given up all hope until we read about an IAS officer in Indore who was covered by the media for clearing up a similar but much smaller landfill under his jurisdiction in 6 months! It gave us an idea of starting this campaign. We’re asking municipal authorities  to bring in IAS officer Asheesh Singh to hold technical consulting workshops for Municipal Corporation workers in Delhi to initiate the process of transforming Ghazipur landfill into a clean, green patch of land. Help us green this landfill which is not only a health hazard for us citizens, but a blot on the global image of our national capital Delhi and on our collective vision of Swachh Bharat. #CleanTheMess #SheVotes2019   Image Credit:

Provide Better Training Equipment at the Guru Premnath Akhada, Delhi

“Ladki kya nahi kar sakti hai?”  Many of us have have grown up hearing the opposite of this, the stereotype of 'what can a girl really achieve?' and I was no exception. My father struggled with his job, and we often faced tough financial situations. Inspired by the girls fighting dangals in Haryana, my father also wanted me to train and fight as a wrestler. It was his dream to see one of his children become a famous wrestler and this became my dream too. I started training at the akhada (training centre) near my house in Gokulpur (New Delhi), and have been competing since I was 10 years old. I still remember the day I went with my father to the local grounds to compete, and no one wanted to compete with me as I was a girl. “How can a girl compete with us?” is all I could hear in whispers around me. I finally got one shot - to play one match to prove myself; and I won. I can never forget that feeling. From there on, there was no looking back from there. I went on to win bronze medals at both, the Asian Games 2018 and Commonwealth Games 2018. None of this would have been possible without the support of my father, who made sure I always had everything I required for my training. Unfortunately, not all women have access to all the resources they need to become champion wrestlers. The Guru Premnath Akhada in Delhi, where I train, desperately needs new equipment as most of it is either broken, or rusty. There are around 100 girls aged 8 years and upwards who train there. This is why I am starting this petition asking the Delhi Government for better gym equipment at the Guru Premnath Akhada, so that this akhada can produce many more Commonwealth and Asian Games champs. I come from a village where girls are married off after class 10 and 12. Their families often borrow money to arrange the wedding. If only they used this money to invest in their daughter’s  education, or sports, just like my father did, there will come a day when a girl will be able to fulfil her dreams and choose the life she wants for herself. Sign this petition to help my Akhada get better equipment, to support the training of many more #DangalQueens that every Indian will be proud of. I was also felicitated as part of The Quint's Me The Change initiative.

एम्स और सभी बड़े अस्पतालों में साधारण नागरिक का आसानी से हो इलाज, जल्द मिले अपॉइंटमेंट

मेरे सिर में ट्यूमर है और पिछले दो सालों से मैं ज़िंदगी और मौत के बीच खड़ा हूँ। इस बीमारी के इलाज में मैंने अपने जीवनभर की कमाई झोंक दी और अब परिवार को कर्ज लेकर चलाने पर मजबूर हूँ। मेरे दो छोटे-छोटे बच्चे हैं, अगर समय पर मेरा इलाज नहीं हुआ तो शायद उनके सिर से पिता का साया उठ जाएगा। मेरी पेटीशन पर हस्ताक्षर कर इसे ज्यादा से ज्यादा शेयर करें ताकि जल्द से जल्द मेरा एम्स में इलाज हो सके। मैं हर जगह से निराश हो चुका हूँ और एम्स (AIIMS) दिल्ली ही मेरी आखिरी उम्मीद बची है, पर एम्स में हम जैसे साधारण लोगों का इलाज इतनी जल्दी कहाँ होता है।  हम जैसे साधारण लोगों के पास न तो नेता का सोर्स होता है ना ही अधिकारी का, तो हमें कहाँ से एम्स में जगह मिलेगी। मैंने कई लोगों से सुना है कि एम्स में इलाज के लिए नेता या अधिकारी के रेफरेंस से काम हो जाता है, पता नहीं इस बात में कितनी सच्चाई है। हर बड़े सरकारी अस्पताल की कहानी लगभग ऐसी ही है। मेरा कोई नहीं इसलिए मैंने ऑनलाइन अपॉइंटमेंट लेने की कोशिश की पर आने वाले दो महीनों तक सब तारीख पहले से बुक है। अभी मेरे हालत बहुत ही नाजुक चल रहे है l मुझे नहीं पता कि आगे मेरे साथ क्या होगा पर मेरे जैसे लाखों-करोड़ों लोग हैं जिन्हें वक्त रहते एम्स और बड़े सरकारी अस्पतालों में अपॉइंटमेंट नहीं मिल पाता।  मेरी सरकार और दिल्ली के सभी नेताओं से अपील है कि वो ऐसा नियम बनाएं ताकि गंभीर बीमारियों के लिए लोगों को कम से कम समय में अपॉइंटमेंट मिले। मेरे अभियान का साथ दें ताकि सबको समय रहते अच्छा इलाज मिल सके। ये समस्या मेरे अकेले की नहीं है, मेरे जैसे अनगिनत भारतीयों की समस्या भी मेरे जैसी है। एम्स और बड़े सराकरी अस्पतालों में साधारण लोगों को जल्दी अपॉइंटमेंट मिलता ही नहीं है। अपॉइंटमेंट की आस में लोग दुनिया को अलविदा कह देते हैं।  फोटो- The Asian Age धन्यवाद,मनी देव  पता- 77, इखलास नगर डाबका  दिल्ली हरिद्वार बाईपास मेरठ  Ph. 9149071770मेरठ

India stands for Indian manufacturers in these hard times​.​#LetsbuyINDIAN

We strongly believe that Indian Micro,Small & Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) MUST Get there Due Respect & Strength & Honour. We have initiated a movement to promote Indian manufactured products. To facilitate this movement we have launched an interactive informative platform where sellers selling MAKE IN INDIA products can freely register and promote their products and at same time buyers across the supply chain can come and buy MAKE IN INDIA products.  We have done our bit by building this online platform to bring together MSME who have suffered losses due to dumping of cheap Chinese products and current Covid situation. No one among us is unaware about the JOB Losses due to Covid and brutal killings of our army men in GALWAN.Thus we urge each one of you to support and sign off this petition which will be presented to the Policy Makers.  1 MSME should be exempted from labour laws , inspections and  minor compliances under law for three years. 2 Effective implementation of online single window system, simplifying property registration, acquisition of land , change of land use and easing compliance of various statutory provisions  3 Government should reserve purchases by some sectors/departments/PSU’s for MSME  4 Major digital reforms should be implemented  for MSME such as virtual court proceedings, e-filing online scrutiny etc  5 MSME should be supported by required infrastructure for transportation by increasing the share of railways and waterways etc and improving last-mile connectivity.

May be , if this keeps going on , that day is not so far away when we will curse ourselves,  we will struggle for food and all basic needs and that might result towards the end of our own.  Many organizations are trying their best to preserve NATURE, the natural life. Similarly our different state governments had also started taking actions ! On this "DIWALI" the festival of happiness,  many State governments like - Rajasthan, Odisha , Sikkim ,West Bengal, Maharashtra , Haryana,  Madhya pradesh,  karnataka have banned the bursting and sales of Fire Crackers.   People might feel bad , but these all actions are taken for nature and their health  benefits. All other state govt. and society should  support it !  CELEBRATE A "GREEN AND HEALTHY" DIWALI THIS YEAR.  Bring Pot Plants , Increase your Gardening Areas, if you are capable of , then Plant TREES as much you can .  For doing this , Use that Money and Savings, that you have planned to spend on Fireworks !  This can be a small step from our side , through  which we can try to HEAL THE NATURE as much as we can . Don't  forget Nature acts as a mother , it always feed us , so wanna gain more , than go for TREES... "Stop using Crackers and Fireworks , Try not to be a polluter , in place , Plant TREES as much as you can , and  be a planter" !!!

‘कचरे के राक्षस’ का हो अंत: प्रशासन ले गाज़ीपुर लैंडफिल की सफाई का संकल्प

प्रिय नागरिकों, मैंने हिंदी पर अपनी वेरिफाइड डिसीजन मेकर प्रोफाइल बनाई है। अब से मैं आधिकारिक रूप से आपसे संवाद करूँगा और आपकी पेटीशन पर जवाब दूँगा। पहली पेटीशन जो मुझे प्राप्त हुई है वो सीमा मिश्रा और पारुल माथुर द्वारा शुरू की गई, उनकी मांग थी कि गाज़ीपुर लैंडफिल की सफाई की दिशा में ठोस कदम उठाए जाएं। पूर्वी दिल्ली से सांसद होने के नाते मैं उन्हें और के 1.7 करोड़ से भी ज्यादा यूज़र्स को बताना चाहता हूँ कि ये मुद्दा मेरी प्राथमिकता है। इसलिए मैंने अपने पहले भाषण के दौरान ही इस मुद्दे को संसद के सामने रखा। मैंने इस पेटीशन में दिए गए सुझावों पर गौर करने के बाद इंदौर के म्युनिसिपल कमिश्नर, श्री आशीष सिंह (IAS) को आमंत्रित भी किया ताकि वो पूर्वी दिल्ली नगर निगम के कर्मचारियों के साथ अपना अनुभव और ज्ञान साझा करें। स्वच्छ भारत मेरा भी संकल्प है, मैं पूर्वी दिल्ली नगर निगम के कमिश्नर श्री दिलराज कौर से पहले ही भेंट कर चुका हूँ। मुझे आश्वस्त किया गया है कि इस मुद्दे पर मुझे पूरा सहयोग मिलेगा ताकि आपको देश की राजधानी पर गर्व हो। #SwachhBharatMission दिल्ली मेरी पहचान का हिस्सा है और यहाँ के लोग ही तय करेंगे कि आगे मेरी पहचान क्या होगी। इसलिए मैं आप सबको प्रोत्साहित करता हूँ कि आप अपनी आवाज़ मुझ तक पहुँचाएं। सोशल मीडिया के माध्यम से मुझे अपनी समस्याएं बताएं और हिंदी पर मुझको संबोधित कर पेटीशन शुरू करें। मैं आपका जवाब देने की पूरी कोशिश करूँगा। आप सबका स्वागत है! मैं चाहता हूँ कि आपको मेरे द्वारा किए जाने वाले कार्यों की पूरी जानकारी हो। कृपया ट्विटर पर @GautamGambhir पर जाकर मेरे साथ जुड़ें। धन्यवाद, गौतम गंभीर सांसद, पूर्वी दिल्ली
