Days after losing the Lok Sabha polls in Delhi, the ruling Aam Aadmi Party has decided to send the Ministers among people to monitor the progress of projects and take feedback from people.
Starting from Tuesday, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his cabinet colleagues will be amidst people.
"They will interact with people on their problems. They will also take stock of schools, hospitals, public dealing offices and other facilities," the Delhi government said in a statement.
The Ministers -- Manish Sisodia, Gopal Rai, Satyendar Jain, Imran Hussain, Rajendra Pal Gautam and Kailash Gehlot -- will take direct feedback from the public on day to day facilities like water, power, roads, healthcare, and PDS.
On Thursday, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had announced to make metro and bus travel free for women in the national capital. The proposal will be implemented within 2-3 months, he said.
"On all DTC buses, cluster buses and metro trains women will be allowed to travel free of cost so that they have a safe travel experience and can access modes of transport which they were not able to, due to high prices..The government will bear their travel expenses," Kejriwal said at a press conference.
For the remaining part of this financial year, the cost of this comes to Rs 700-800 crore, he said.
Meanwhile, women in the national capital raised questions over the proposed scheme and put forth their concerns on safety. Free travel will not necessarily translate into safe travel in public transports, Delhi women said.
