The Delhi BJP today demanded the Arvind Kejriwal government to come out with a white paper on its plan to revive the Delhi Transport Corporation, alleging financial health of the public transporter was in "disarray".
Tiwari accused the Shiela Dikshit-led Congress government and the Kejriwal dispensation of not making efforts to increase in the number of buses in the city, saying in the last six years, the need for buses in Delhi has increased to 11,000.
"Even if Kejriwal government buys 2,000 buses over the next two years, Delhi will have hardly 3,000 buses running on the road as by that time two-third of the existing fleet would have to shelved," Tiwari claimed.
At present, the DTC has a fleet of around 4,000 buses, while around 2,200 buses runs on the city roads under the cluster scheme of Delhi Integrated Multi-Modal Transit System (DIMTS).
