AAP MLA’s ‘Pizza Hut’ jibe for Delhi LG on ‘home delivery’ of services


AAP MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj has hit out at the Delhi Lieutenant Governor for vetoing the Delhi government’s plan to home deliver at least 40 essential services to citizens’ doorsteps. Bharadwaj used Pizza Hut analogy to take a dig at LG Anil Baijal.

Taking to Twitter, Bharadwaj said, “If LG was the CEO of PizzaHut, he would have killed the entire pizza delivery industry. LG’s Logic – Everyone should go to pizza joints as delivery causes congestion & Pollution. #LGisNotElected blocks doorstep delivery of services. (sic)”

Delhi deputy chief minister, Manish Sisodia, on Tuesday had claimed that Baijal had rejected his government’s proposal to “home deliver” basic public services such as birth certificates to social welfare schemes.

In a series of tweets, Sisodia said, “LG rejects proposal of doorstep delivery of 40 govt services like caste-birth-address certificates, licences, social welfare schemes, pensions, registrations..etc. LG sends it back for reconsideration. LG says digitalization of services enough. No need for doorstep delivery.

“Most of these services r already digital. Yet, long queues in offices. Despite digitalization, most people still hv to run around govt offices with docs etc. Under doorstep delivery scheme, a govt rep wud visit ur house on a ph call to collect, certify n upload ur docs. (sic)”

In November, the Kejriwal government had proposed the idea of roll out a scheme, wherein 40 public services, including driving licences, birth and caste certificates and new water connections, will reach the doorsteps of citizens.
