NCPs youth wing condemns Delhi CMs remarks on Poorvanchal immigrants

Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit might have apologised for her remarks on the migration of people from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar to the Capital, but the youth wing of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) today said that the statement was highly uncalled for.

New Delhi, May 11 : Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit might have apologised for her remarks on the migration of people from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar to the Capital, but the youth wing of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) today said that the statement was highly uncalled for.

Condemning Dikshit's remarks, the Nationalist Youth Congress said: "In the era of globalisation when we are talking about creating a global village and in a scenario when our country is liberalizing its economy and there is two-way flow of human and economic resource, the statement of Sheila Dikshit on laying of foundation stone for a chain of fly-over is highly uncalled for".The party said that her statement has not only hurt the sentiments of people living in these states, but also that of every progressive Indian coming from all walks of life.A day after expressing helplessness in stopping people from migrating to Delhi, Sheila Dikshit on Thursday went into full damage-control mode, saying the Capital is a home for people from every part of the country.

"I sincerely regret and extend my apology for this unfortunate happening," she told a press conference.

Asserting that she had no intention of hurting the sentiments of anybody, Dikshit said, "Delhi is the national capital and is a home for people from every part of the country," adding, "I am sorry to learn that the Lok Sabha was agitated over my alleged statement and the House could not discharge its functions".

She went on to say that her statement was distorted in a section of the media, as she was fully aware of the contribution made by people coming from other states, especially from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh in the development of the Capital.
