The BRT had come at a cost of several hundred heritage trees of Delhi, which were removed to widen the road and provide additional space for the overall architecture of the BRT. But this was not the reason why the BRT was being criticized in the media or objected to by a portion of the public. The “Bus” Rapid Transit had slowed down the flow of cars and similar private automobiles in its 5.8 km stretch was the principal reason why the media was bashing up the Government for having conceived and installed the BRT corridor.
Each and every Indian festival is unique in itself and so is true for Holi – the festival of colours. Applying colours on each others face and enjoying splashes of water along with the colour and joy indeed makes it a very fun-filled festival.

Delhi Greens urges everyone to understand and emphasize on eco-friendly celebrations this Holi!
