Arvind Kejriwal scraps BRT corridor launched by former government


BRT1The Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi, on 21 July, has decided to do away with the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor system, which was introduced in the city, with much fanfare, by the former Shiela Dikshit-led Congress government.

“The decision to scrap BRT was taken at a meeting, which was chaired by chief minister Arvind Kejriwal,” said Delhi law minister Kapil Mishra.

The former government had opened the BRT corridor in Delhi on April 20, 2008. This move was welcomed by environmentalists and several transport experts as a solution to Delhi’s traffic woes that would promote public transport.
