New Delhi: Delhi Government might be receiving flak for the controversial Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor here, but the project has been selected for an award by a Tawain-based organisation.
Delhi chief secretary Rakesh Mehta has left for Tainan city in Taiwan to receive the award at a function on Wednesday at an Asia Pacific conference being organised by a voluntary body, People to People International’s Tainan Chapter.
Before leaving for Taiwan, Mehta said international experts have complimented the project and there is need to educate people about usage of the corridor.
“BRT is going to provide efficient mass transportation,” he said, adding the fact that the project has been chosen for the Asia Pacific award indicates its importance.
The Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) of India in its latest report had pulled up the Delhi government for implementing the project in haste ignoring suggestions from the concerned experts.
