Delhi Government Initiatives.... 1260 km in Delhi to be Dust Free - Vacuum Cleaning and Greening

Delhi's roads are set to get a green makeover with Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today launching a drive for 'greeening' and vacuum cleaning of roads. Mr Kejriwal inaugurated the Greening Delhi initiative in the national capital, and said the move will deal with road dust, which is one of the major sources of air pollution in the national capital. A senior government official said that bald patches of roads will be greened to reduce the pollution caused by road dust.

Mr Kejriwal further said that the vacuum cleaning of the roads will also begin from tomorrow so that no dust will cause air pollution in the capital. "Congrats Delhi. Vacuum cleaning and greening of PWD roads begins. Greening will complete by Oct, vacuum cleanin (sic) on all roads in 2 months," he tweeted. Making a political pitch ahead of municipal polls set to be held next year, the Delhi Chief Minister said his government was cleaning 1,260 km roads of PWD and next year, it would clean MCD's roads after winning municipal polls.
