Arshiya (Amity International School) How do you propose to improve Delhi’s existing infrastructure in order to accommodate the influx of migrant population?

Dr Harsh Vardhan: You can’t stop anybody officially,so you have to devise a mechanism to deal with it. The concept of NCR,unfortunately,has remained on paper. The board meets once in six months and circulates minutes. That’s all. This concept has to be strengthened and this is one of the priority areas we will bring up with Narendra Modi when he becomes the Prime Minister. The first is to get statehood for Delhi,then convert the NCR Planning Board into an authority which has more power and financial strength,and to develop satellite towns.
