New Delhi drug problem


Delhi Law Minister Somnath Bharti said that “I feel like spitting on the face of leaders like Arun Jaitley who do not care about their own public being affected by drug intakes,” he said. “It is not my fault if there are pimps sitting in the Congress and the BJP,” said Bharti in an apparent effort to defend the AAM party’s record in power in New Delhi. The law and order situation is of course not under his control but of the lieutenant governor in this strange arrangement in the city. So Mr. Bharti is excusing the deteriorating situation on everyone around him, and has no immediate plans for improvements, or actions being carried out to bring civility and service to New Delhi. A modern city has to be more effective in carrying out the law.

It is a case of mistaken municipal boundaries and jurisdictions, which are the comedy of what New Delhi; has become. It is a wonder that everything works as well as it does, in spite of all the municipal, State and central organizations, playing their separate parts. Surrendering your public to drugs is clearly a misappropriation of justice, no matter which way you look at it. No excuse for allowing this cancer to fester in a modern city and Mr. Bharti should pound more on the how instead of the why not’s. Vague accusations against leading statesmen do not help this serious cause. Neighboring states are encouraging the outlaw behavior further by being an easy conduit, compounding the problems of drugs slowly spreading in the streets of New Delhi. Vigilance and security need commitment from the Law Minister to go forward in this war, just as the graph shows the drug war in the US, needs constant political commitment..
