COMMUNITY

Face Off
Tewari is a weekend leader
What are the main poll issues?
Traffic and pollution are the two major problems that ail the city. To make it clean and convenient for people, a two-pronged SAD candidate Gurcharan Singh Galib and Congress candidate Manish Tewari strategy would be needed. A mass transport is needed to help combat traffic as well as pollution problems. Vehicular emissions also need to be checked and a fuel with less fumes needs to be introduced. I have a soft corner for the physically challenged and the elderly. I would ensure that all public utility places are user friendly for these people.
