Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has promised to make Delhi a world-class city in “just four years”. Kejriwal in his address also emphasised the need for adopting technology, but without any loss of jobs. He also reiterated that cleanliness of the national capital is of prime importance.
“As I had said during the elections, we will make Delhi one of the best cities in the world,” he said inaugurating mechanical Road Sweepers on Kalibari Road in Central Delhi.
“If we continue to receive the love and support of the public and the workers, then not in five years, we will make Delhi a world class city in just four years,” he added.
The Chief Minister said that the use of Mechanical Road Sweepers by New Delhi Municipal Council or NDMC is at present on a trial basis and will be implemented in a broader manner if it proves successful.
However, Mr Kejriwal stressed that with the introduction of mechanical sweeping, no sanitary worker should lose their job.
It was also mentioned during the address that, the environment department of the Delhi government has commissioned a study by IIT Kanpur to determine the extent and nature of particulate pollution in the city to devise a strategy to keep a check on it.
