It’s maybe breaking information to some however many people who comply with this straightforward man named Satyendra Jain intently in Delhi, know for certain, that there can be an extended record of jobs that he has so innovatively achieved for Delhi. I visited his residence-cum-office in Civil Traces together with my space MLA and former regulation minister Somnath Bharti to debate a mission.
His straightforward, pure fashion of discourse fully floored me and I blurted out to him – how I want I used to be younger once more and get into this working house of his to assist him! To which he stated, it’s by no means too late to try this, age is only a quantity!
Getting again to the joblist, allow us to depend up a number of, as an train which evokes me rather a lot! Virtually all path breaking new concepts have come from him, be it college school rooms, ATM machines – not cash however any time medication kiosks in Delhi meting out free medicines, including MRI machines on a weekly foundation; the whole lot associated to flyover constructions are a number of which I relate straightaway.
Allow us to get nearer to particulars. Pallavi Rebbapragada, coverage advisor to the Delhi authorities, lately introduced out a sequence of her tweets through which she gave tremendous particulars of her research on the departments dealt with by Satyendra Jain and about him typically. Working on the Delhi Vidhan Sabha as a researcher for two.5 years, she has been documenting knowledge on Satyendra Jain’s departments.
Revealing her “ideas about why each single Indian ought to learn about this much less talked about chief”, let me summarise what she stated in her tweets about Satyendra Jain, who’s knowledgeable architect, as is his spouse Poonam Jain:
- He ran a really profitable (extremely worthwhile) architectural agency when he determined to offer all of it up and be a part of India In opposition to Corruption! At 47, he determined to not work for cash. His ambitions ranged taking his mom on a tirth yatra to giving again to his nation – none of which required cash.
- He shut down his follow and joined Aam Aadmi Celebration (AAP). From the record of jobs, the primary that come to thoughts are the Mohalla Clinics, which was his concept; since you want an architect to assemble a clinic in lower than 20 lakhs, porta cabins on pavements, in a metropolis of advanced land legal guidelines.
- From getting residents to search out land to rehiring retired medical doctors, Aam Aadmi Moholla Clinics (AAMC) have been probably the most disruptive of schemes ever and the lieutenant governor took fairly a while to offer his nod!
- Subsequent on the record could be the hospital beds of three hospitals. Jain seen that the per mattress price (non-AC) of hospitals at Burari, Ambedkar Nagar and Dwarka, underneath development by the Congress authorities was amounting to Rs 1 crore. He slashed it to lower than Rs 20 lakh and elevated the mattress energy. Sheila Dikshit confessed she would have benefited a lot in case she had a minister like him!
- Subsequent within the record of Jain is just not solely about development of 21,000 new school rooms however at a value introduced down when in comparison with their predecessors. The cash thus saved from PWD’s development initiatives went into providing important medicine, free in Delhi! Capital has an Important Medication Listing! It’s Jain who made such subsidies/ ’freebies’ fiscally prudent!
- It has by no means been straightforward to safe land for AAMCs to make these clinics. Jain has fought tooth and nail for every one! Earlier than organising AAMCs, he toured hospitals solely to comprehend that medical doctors have been competent however administrative and administration workers wasn’t designed to cater to a big crowd of sufferers.
- He was the one to comprehend, Delhi doesn’t lack competent medical doctors, however administration of hospitals want skilled providers. Ever heard of HR practices in hospitals? It’s all Jain’s doing! The identical hospitals are functioning means higher and successfully! Each different week he inaugurates MRI machines, extremely sound amenities and fashionable ICUs!
- From reps of Harvard Medical Faculty, coming to find out about AAMCs, to reward from Amartya Sen, Ban-ki-Moon, to advisors from IIT, Stanford, Princeton, Cambridge, he attracts excessive reward from non-political individuals and surrounds himself with area specialists!
- Do you know Rohini has the most important vitality storage system of its variety in South Asia, and that was inaugurated by Jain? Do you know the Delhi Jal Board (DJB), underneath his steerage, is organising fashionable extraction wells, sewage therapy crops and reviving water our bodies? Delhiites maybe don’t even know the place they’re situated!
- Ever been to Palla or Rajokri? At a mere price of Rs 2.22 crore, the division revived the water physique at Rajokri village. The three-years pilot mission which began in 2019 concerned retaining extra Yamuna water in shallow reservoirs on the flood plains through the wet/ monsoon season. All these have been the thought course of of 1 man, Satyendra Jain.
- Additional nonetheless, who do you suppose slashed the electrical energy payments? It was certainly the efforts of Jain whose energy division TRANSCO is money wealthy (was in deep debt throughout Sheila Dikshit’s time) it’s as a result of steps he took! He carried out AAP’s photo voltaic coverage and that paid off! Subsequent on his dealing with record and but yet another step which secured Delhi a lot. and that will get us to the query of – who acquired the CCTV cameras put in? It’s as soon as once more Jain!
- From Farishtey Yojnaa to shutting down polluted coal crops — to give attention to cleaner, cheaper energy, Jain has achieved the whole lot he might for Delhi ! He will not be a dramatic orator like Smriti Irani, however this man has labored very arduous, very truthfully and introduced innovation to governance! His story stays much less recognized as a result of he isn’t a political minister, he’s a governance minister and a uncommon true son of the Indian soil!
- On-line knowledge is out there, suggesting Jain has helped the Kejriwal authorities save over Rs 300 crores in three flyovers mission and had earned reward from vp Venkaiah Naidu. The mission was sanctioned Rs 700 crore by the Sheila Dikshit authorities. That is what Arvind Kejriwal has enabled in India.
Now, after having immersed oneself in such nice work of concepts and innovation, Jain is subjected to raids and always hounded by CBI, IB, ED, IT — all of the companies one might consider! Deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia and chief minister Arvind Kejriwal get raided systematically. About 400 recordsdata, all get picked up and scrutinised by the Shunglu Committee – a whole waste of time, as they discovered nothing incriminating by any means.
It’s a typical case defined so properly in a Hindi movie track line – “Choron ko saare nazar – aatey hain chor” (The cheats can solely see cheats throughout)! They only can’t think about that good individuals can exist!
So that is the place we stand within the quagmire of soiled disgusting politics and we’re victimising good individuals and never letting them work trigger they’re always bringing down the citadels of corruption and threatening the existence of corrupt individuals.
Ashish Khaitaan, a detailed buddy, writes, “This man is just not even an accused and I’m not saying that simply because I do know him properly however ED’s lawyer, whereas showing within the Excessive Courtroom, stated the identical.”
This man has been raided repeatedly over time — by each attainable company, nothing has been discovered until date. Simply final week, 10 days again this man acquired raided but once more. What they recovered from his home this time was INR 2,79,000 in money which they didn’t seize because it was accounted for.
Khaitaan screams in his write-up most of what I’ve already stated above that — “This man has redefined healthcare…”
I used to solely hear of main, secondary and tertiary healthcare as an idea this man confirmed the proof of idea along with his mohalla clinics, polyclinics and hospitals. He simply redefined the way in which authorities ought to run its healthcare providers.
This man confirmed how public infrastructure initiatives might be constructed at beneath the sanctioned price and inside timelines. This man has constructed 21k school rooms despite the fact that the Delhi authorities didn’t have any management on land but they’d a promise to fulfil utilizing his architectural abilities. He redesigned the prevailing faculties, utilizing current land and what school rooms he has constructed!
And right here he was in custody for 14 days, then was taken to the hospital. He had a serious bout of Covid final 12 months and has had well being points since. One can solely hope that the authorities are taking excellent care of him.
As an aam aadmi and the Bengali blood in me boils and I protest in opposition to this act. I protest in opposition to each motion of theirs, I protest in opposition to their farmer coverage, I protest their anti-poor insurance policies, I protest their letting off Vijay Mallaya, Nirav Modi, Lalit Modi, Mehul Choksi who took run out powder from the nation and brought refuge overseas after having taken 1000’s of crores, over a lakh crore prior to now eight years with curiosity!
This authorities has bungled in demonetization of Rs 8.5 lakh crore, and now implicates a Satyendra Jain with Rs 3 lakh accounted for cash, Rs 2 crore and gold cash in some relations’ accounts… this authorities is victimizing an harmless particular person … I protest in opposition to such gross misrule!
I want to finish on a musical notice, and I quote: “Bhool naa paapi, magar paap ki ziadaa nahin dukaan chalay – Ram Krishna harey, Ram Krishna harey, Ram Krishna harey — Ram Krishna harey!”
Satyendra Jain is an elf-angel chief, we the aam aadmi know…
