The business capital of Delhi, Connaught Place, is all set to become a no-traffic zone from 1st February.
While some may dismiss this decision as juvenile, it seems like a very calculated move to attract media and attention.
Is there a need to control traffic and its movement in CP – YES. But the solution being proposed it extremely absurd. I am surprised at the apathy with which such decisions are being made in this country, especially Delhi. Seems like we have become a test ground of whimsical, irrational politicians to try-out ideas with no ground level thinking to it.
What is going to happen to the hundreds of businesses in the CP area that rely on walk-in customers or the businesses where people have to go to?
What is going to happen to those women who work late in CP and are very comfortable since they are able to take their cars and have a means to commute?
I run a 75 people social media agency in CP and have 4 paid underground parking spots. Being the CEO and Business Development Head for one of the best digital marketing agencies, I have a need to be able to travel during the day. I want to understand what this government wants business owners and people like me to do.
