Ills of society affect one and all. Issues - be it municipal, security, lack of good governance or infrastructure - only multiply the woes.

I want to talk about Mr. Abhishek Dutt, a man who doesn’t believe in giving up, rather firm determination. And is aiding to improve the society by effectively being a part of it.
Mr. Abhishek Dutt, saw a landslide victory in the recent MCD elections and welcomed with much joy and jubilation as the Municipal Councillor for Ward Number 159, comprising of the following colonies- Defence Colony, Lajpat Nagar-1, South extention-2, Anand Lok, Siri-Fort Road, Sadiq Nagar, Sanwal Nagar, A.V Nagar, Indira camp.

An affluent background and a multitude of qualifications as part of his resume, presented him with numerous lucrative offers. He instead, chose to serve his community and render service selfless in nature. Empathy for society doesn’t cultivate all of a sudden, blessed are those beings who have the will to help and contribute.

The journey till now for Mr. Dutt has been one of struggle, navigated only through strong grit. He has been involved in multifarious political activities right from the university level; active participation in the NSUI ensured his election as the DU Central Councillor, he has been in the forefront in demanding cultural and student rights. Furthermore he has been a part of the governing body of various colleges, and was unanimously nominated by the Delhi Government as the Chairman of Sukhdev College of Business Studies, Preet vihar.

Mr. Dutt has won popular acclaim to the level of Felicitation from His Excellency , the President of India, Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam for executing audio reinforcement for the World’s Largest  theatre production - `The Legend of Ram, Prince of India’, directed by Aamir Raza Hussain. In addition, his immeasurable Humanitarian service towards the under-privileged children, only to be applauded in form of commemoration from His Excellency, Governor of Madhya Pradesh, Dr. Balram Jhakar. Similar endeavors to promote Human Welfare, have received praise and felicitation from Mr. Kapil Dev.

Mr. Dutt in his current capacity looks into the categories namely -

  • Horticulture
  • Cleanliness
  • Sanitation
  • Maintenance

Yet, he has extended support to people facing other issues, be it security (many a times he has taken up such concerns to the S.H.O) or the Def Col Nallah (technically it comes under the jurisdiction of the D.D.A). For each colony falling in Ward 159, Mr. Dutt has delegated tasks to his representatives who undertake speedy measures to redress the grievances of the respected residents. Tasks such as Cleanliness of back lanes, Removal of debris, Street lighting, Cleaning of drains and Mosquito sprays to keep their breeding under control, to name a few.

My meeting with him was organized at his work place, where he resolves core issues on a daily basis; staying connected with the RWAs on phone every alternate day, and also through weekly meetings.

It is easy to judge a man by his single ideology - that he is answerable only to his people. His unshakable faith in democratic traditions and secular ideals, resonates in his rise as a leader.

Surely to carve a permanent niche in the hearts of his people.
