Delhi’s Urban Development Minister Ashok Kumar Walia on Thursday exhorted all agencies concerned to pull up their socks to accomplish the facelift of the Walled City and Subhash Marg, Daryaganj before the commencement of the Commonwealth Games.
Daryaganj forms an important link to the World Heritage Site of Red Fort and is also close to the Game-related venue of Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium.
Shahjahanabad Redevelopment Corporation (SRDC) has been asked to make serious efforts to to complete the beautification process in Chandni Chowk.
“The facelift of Daryaganj before the Games will help present a better image of the Old City. The Walled City is of paramount importance as far as attracting tourists is concerned,” he said.
Walia also ordered to repair the damaged sewarage and drainage system in the area within 10 days, an official release said.
