Delhi govt unveils ‘Car-Free Day’ logo
Delhi government is working with a 10 point agenda to defeat the deadly air pollution and traffic chaos which is becoming a major threat for the national Capital. To combat this, the government is all set to organise an awareness programme ‘Car Free Day’ on the road stretch between Red Fort and India Gate on October 22 (Wednesday), Delhi Transport minister Gopal Rai said.
While launching the logo of Delhi government’s much-talked programme ‘Car Free Day’, urging the people of Delhi to join the moment to make it a success, the minister said that organising such programme is the need of the hour. The words ‘ab bas karein’ is engraved on the logo. He said that, taxies like Ola, Uber, Meru etc plying on Delhi’s roads have become major sources of concern as they are flouting the norms of environment set for national Capital. “We have decided to make the Delhi roads free from these taxies that create air pollution. Once this Poocho app is made operational I am sure we will be able to provide last mile connectivity to the people,” Rai said. Rai also said that, the government has identified as many as five locations in Karkari Nahar, Revla Khanpur, Tichaukala, Dwarka sector-22, and Rani Kheda for developing bus depots. The transport department has been facing crunch of bus depots. “Tenders for 1000 new cluster buses have already been issued and they will be brought on the Delhi roads soon. These upcoming five depots will help to solve depots problems at present, Rai said, adding “AAP government is committed to provide last mile connectivity for Delhties.
