Dear IAC subscribers
I am pleased to inform IAC community that after the continual evasions of AAP's Delhi Govt. Secretariat, including Chief Secretary, the office of Hon'ble L-G of Delhi has taken cognisance of our complaints that "WiFi in Delhi" scheme is being carried in a non-transparent, corrupt and fraudulent matter by a so-called Delhi Dialogue Commission and with manipulation of transfers of certain officers.
IAC is well cognisant that the term "Delhi Dialogue" was coined and used during the IAC andolan of 2011-2012, and indisputably precedes the 2010 phase of IAC andolan,since from at least January 21-22 2009 ! As such the term "Delhi Dialogue" is an IPR asset of IAC flowing from the original Brahmic legacy of Ms. Sarojini Naidu, a member of HRA.
IAC would have had no objection if this term/mark was used strictly for apolitical purposes by anybody in the public interest. However, the AAP has proceeded / attempted to convert this widely known public mark into its personal property, strangely to be co-terminus with its Government, through a dubious GoNCTD notification issued, in name of the Hon'ble L-G, by an officer who properly should have been sitting in the UT of Andaman and Nicobar. It is strange that this self styled AAP 'Commission' is not constituted by any act of legislature to make it a body corporate. Neither is it a Commission of Inquiry.
Accordingly, IAC has reason to think that the term "commission" as used by GoNCTD is actually a code word to indicate to vested interests where to negotiate the bribes to be paid through this irregular body which is presided over by Shri Arvind Kejriwal.
Accordingly also, in the public interest, IAC had taken formal steps to register / secure its own interest in the name "Delhi Dialogue Commission", and as today IAC stands duly registered / licenced with the Central Government to use the mark 'Delhi Dialogue Commission', and we shall actually be doing so very shortly, and also conveying our strong protests and objections to the Govt of Delhi asking them to cease and desist from using our licenced mark, especially for misuse and annexation of lands and the associated rights in Delhi at the cost of the poor or deprived peoples like farmers and slum dwellers.
Accordingly also, as an urgent interim measure, the IAC hereby constitutes a working "Delhi Dialogue Commission" as below with immediate effect from our list members.
- Chairman : Er Sarbajit Roy ;
- Vice-Chairman : Shri Veeresh Malik ;
- Member : Ms. Gita Dewan Verma ; Expert urban planner
- Member : Mr. Ram Kumar Atri ; Land rights expert
All positions are honorary and unpaid. No.TA/DA etc. shall be allowed.
Further information shall ensue from this IAC Commission in due course, including addition / co-opting of members / experts / RWA etc. to ensure widest possible participation of people of Delhi, especially slum dwellers, farmers and workers, in having honest and transparent structured dialogues with the Government of Delhi for their problems / grievances.
