Malegaon: A high level delegation led by Human Welfare Foundation (HWF) Chairman Dr. Saiyid Hamid met Delhi Chief Minister Mrs. Shiela Dixit on Saturday October 24 and apprised her about the alarming condition of the Badarpur Khadar Village.


Badarpur Khadar Village located 20 kms to Indian capital New Delhi is miserably lacking in basic amenities. The delegation discussed the possibilities of developing the area and offered to adopt the village so as to provide the area with necessary facilities of healthcare, education and other basic infrastructure, said HWF press release issued yesterday.


An NGO based in New Delhi, Human Welfare Foundation (HWF) is devoted to the uplift of the weaker sections. Under 'Vision 2016 project' - its ambitious plan to transform the social landscape of the country - the NGO has recently undertaken broad-based ameliorative work mainly in the domains of education and health in different states of the country.


Besides Dr. Saiyid Hamid, the delegation that met the Delhi Chief Minister on October 24 included HWF Vice Chairman Muhammad Jafar,  General Secretary Prof. K. A. Siddique Hassan, Athar Kareem Qidwai and Saleemullah Khan.


According to HWF National Coordinator  Saleemullah Khan, the Village - part of Karawal Nagar Assembly Segment of Delhi Pradesh and having a population of above 5000 people is lacking in all sorts of basic amenities. A report published in The Hindu on October 11, 2009 about the dangerous condition in the village encouraged Human Welfare Foundation (HWF) to meet the Chief Minister and offer her to adopt the village.


Titled as 'Delhi village leads life without electricity', the report in the leading Indian daily had observed, ‘Badarpur Khadar Village in Karawal Nagar constituency area of North-East Delhi barely 30 minute run from CM office lacks every basic facility. It has no power, no water connection, no school and nor a government dispensary. Most of the children and women in the area are affected by dust allergy. The poor people have become destitute in their own homeland.'


The chief minister was shocked over the report. She immediately ordered the area Sub Divisional Magistrate (SDM) to look into the matter and submit a report at the earliest, said Saleemullah Khan in the press release.


Noting that CM Shiela Dixit over the years has given a fillip to Public-Private Partnership (PPP), the Foundation said it had picked up this extremely backward area for adoption and expected government support in the matter.


The Foundation also urged the Chief Minister to provide electricity, sanitation, a proper approach road, fair price shops and NREGS in the village.
