Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on August 3 launched Delhi@2047, an initiative to facilitate partnerships between the government, private entities and citizen groups to turn the national capital into a global city by 2047.
Declaring the initiative, CM Kejriwal tweeted, “As India enters its 75th year of independence, it is time to set our vision for 2047. I invite all corporates and philanthropic organisations to join the Delhi@2047 initiative and make Delhi the number one city in the world.”
The objective of the initiative is to work towards policies and strategies to reinforce the city’s public infrastructure, transport communication, solid waste management and the protective shield against air pollution.
“This platform aims to provide a wide room for partnership and cooperation in making Delhi a global city of the 21st century, enhancing the standard of life,” the CM said adding, “We will increase Delhi’s per capita income to Singapore’s level.”
The Delhi CM launching the initiative also said, “We will bid for 2048 Olympics. There should be a 24×7 water supply before the next polls.”
“For doing such works, we need the cooperation of residents, the corporate sector and all other sectors. We have set an example in Covid-19 management,” Kejriwal was quoted as saying by ANI.
“Delhi has made good efforts in some sectors in the last 5 years. Extraordinary achievements have been made in the sectors of education, health, power and public services. Delhi has a 24×7 electricity supply. There are more than 100 door services. Many things are yet to be done. We want to make roads as per European standards,” Kejriwal added further.
To start working for the development of Delhi further, the Aam Aadmi Party is determined to include the required documents in the state budget 2021-22.
