Chhibber’s poll promise

Chhibber’s poll promiseThe members of Delhi’s elite Gymkhana Club are waiting for the implementation of an election promise made by the current president, Vijay Chhibber. A 1978-batch IAS officer of the Manipur-Tripura cadre, Chhibber made this promise during the elections. Chhibber is currently working as Secretary, Road Transport and Highways. The boundary of the Club is located opposite the residence of the Prime Minister and runs parallel to its front gate. The Land and Development (L&DO) authorities in the Ministry of Urban Development had acquired 3.5 acres of land on the premise of a possible security threat as the club is a public place. The management of Gymkhana went to the High Court to get the land back but the Delhi High Court rejected the case stating that the Gymkhana does not have the right to take a stand on national security issues. During the Club elections, Chhibber did not know what to do, so he promised the members that he would bring back the land once he was elected to office. Clearly, like many Indian politicians, Chhibber is not worried about his election promise now that he has already won the election.
