Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday while on a visit to his assembly constituency asked the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) to look into the foul stench from a compost pit in central Delhi’s Gol Market, pointed out by residents, by August 20.

Kejriwal, who was visiting market area under the New Delhi constituency, directed NDMC officials to solve the problem by then or shut it down, a Delhi government statement said.
