Kejriwal meets CII delegation; discuss issues of Delhi's development, economic progress

New Delhi, Oct 21 (UNI) Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday met a delegation of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) Northern Region, to discuss issues of Delhi's development and economic progress.

The CII delegation congratulated the Chief Minister for Delhi government’s consistent efforts towards improving social infrastructure, especially in education and healthcare, that has led to Delhi’s economic growth and prosperity.

The CII also acknowledged the government’s steps to reduce pollution by 25 per cent over the last three years and expressed their interest in supporting the government’s proposed measures to further reduce pollution in the years to come.

The CII informed Mr Kejriwal that the industry body has adopted 100 villages spread over six districts of Punjab to develop alternative ways of dealing with crop stubble. The smoke generated by the burning of stubble in Punjab and Haryana causes a sudden spike in air pollution in Delhi in the winter months and the CII said that the solution to Delhi's problems in these months lies in providing alternatives to farmers in these states.

The CII said the Odd Even scheme was a successful model towards reducing pollution in Delhi, and it was commendable that Delhi had achieved this success in its first attempt.

The CII delegation shared with the Chief Minister that their industry body was keen on collaborating with the Delhi government towards improving Delhi’s cleanliness.

Mr Kejriwal has urged them to present him with a plan for cleaning the city with timelines for the execution.

He said the government was very keen on developing a cleaner city for the residents for which the government is looking for ideas.

Mr Kejriwal told the delegation that his government would implement a workable solution that the CII presents to the government.

The CII shared its interest in working with the Delhi government in creating a Knowledge Centre in Delhi, and Mr Kejriwal said he would be happy to support such a programme.

Mr Kejriwal expressed his concern over the growing unemployment in the country and asked the CII to support the government in developing programs to boost employment and generate jobs for Delhi's youth.

The CII expressed its interest in collaborating with the new Skills and Entrepreneurship University announced by the Delhi government last week.

The Chief Minister said the CII can help the government identify key industries that the new university can design course for. CII will work with the government to develop and design courses for the new university to ensure that all students graduating from the university will be employable.
