BRT in Delhi ( 5.6 km ) has already claimed 11 precious lives since April 08.

It appears as though the Government of Delhi wishes to set a record on the number of deaths per kilometer of road space.

The Chief Minister of Delhi said in an election meeting that the BRT corridor will be completed.

The speaker of Delhi Assembly in a moment of clarity and sanity has promised to stop the BRT work immediately.
