New Delhi: Delhi cannot become a smart city till the fighting among multiple agencies stops, deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia said.

Speaking at an event organised by the PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry at the NDMC Convention Centre here, he called for clarity in the national capital’s governance.

 

Delhi industries minister Satyendar Jain also attended the event.

Mr Sisodia said there is “total confusion” in the national capital owing to multiplicity of agencies. “Until and unless we make our governance system smarter, no technology can help us,” he said.

“We have a Delhi that belongs to the DDA, a Delhi that belongs to L-G sahab, one Delhi that is of the Delhi police, one Delhi that belongs to the NDMC. You need to bring clarity for becoming a smart city,” he added.

The deputy chief minister said multiple agencies taking decisions for the people of Delhi results in “chaos”.

“There is hardly any coordination among these agencies for the welfare of Delhiites and they are fighting among themselves. In such circumstances, converting the present landscape of Delhi into a smarter city would not be possible,” he said.
