The Lt. Governor (LG) of Delhi Anil Baijal flagged off last week an array of smart e-rickshaws in Dwarka for metro rail commuters.
According to an LG office communique, the e-rickshaws will run from Dwarka sub-city to Sector 10 metro station for the convenience of commuters.
It added that the launch of e-rickshaws is the first and significant step of Delhi Metro service toward pollution-free green and clean Delhi.
“मेट्रो यात्रियों की सुविधा के लिए द्वारका सब सिटी से द्वारका मेट्रो स्टेशन सेक्टर –१० तक के लिए स्मार्ट इ–रिक्शा बेड़े का उद्घाटन। हरित और स्वच्छ दिल्ली के लिए प्रदूषण रहित यातायात की ओर मेट्रो की महत्त्वपूर्ण पहल l” it was tweeted.
With a population of nearly one million, Dwarka is said to be the largest residential suburb in Asia. It has a cluster of cooperative group housing societies which have become dens of crime and corruption.
Although LG Baijal and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal are fully aware of corruption in housing societies, they have not taken any steps to weed out corruption and stop the increasing incidents of crime.
On Sunday, a tree plantation drive was started in Dwarka where around 10,000 trees were planted. Dwarka is a sub-city planned and developed by the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) having an area around 5,648 hectares with recreational land use of 19.94%. In Dwarka there are 94 parks.
