RWAs write to candidates, demand return of ward panel
The United Residents Joint Action (URJA), an umbrella body of over 2,500 registered Resident Welfare Associations (RWAs) in the Capital, has written to all the candidates competing in the upcoming municipal polls, requesting them to re-start the Residents Ward Committee (RWC) to solve local issues more effectively.
RWC, a committee of RWA representatives from every ward across the national Capital, was launched by the undivided Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) in 2011. It used to identify the problems in wards and help their councillors in the development work.
“The committee, under the chairmanship of the municipal councillors from each ward, will be highly effective in solving problems and finding solutions for the development of the wards,” Atul Goyal, Convener, URJA said. “It is very important to engage RWAs and citizens to solve local issues more effectively,” he said.
