Under the Delhi government’s latest plan, the overhauledChandniChowk will not only attract tourists during the day but also draw them after sunset. The Delhi government is planning to allow street food stalls to stay open till 12 a.m. so that “visitors can enjoy the famous market to the fullest”, said Chief Minister ArvindKejriwal.
He inaugurated the revamped market on Sunday after the redevelopment and beautification works done by the government over the past three years.
“ChandniChowk is famous across the world but when tourists would find broken roads, traffic jams and hanging electric wires, which leaves an overall dirty image. Now, after the redevelopment works, people of Delhi are proud of the 1.4 km stretch from Red Fort to Fatehpuri Mosque,” Mr. Kejriwal said.
The CM said that the stretch has been beautified, solving traffic problems, and CCTVs have been installed, with all hanging electrical wires being made underground now.
Urban Development Minister Satyendar Jain said that the main road of ChandniChowk is one of the most beautiful places in Delhi and this redevelopment work is just anindication of how the government aims to make the entire city the most beautiful city in the world.
This project was scheduled to be inaugurated on April 17 this year but was canceled due to the second wave of COVID-19.
