Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday asked the Public Works Department (PWD) to procure 1.5 lakh more CCTV cameras and asked it to submit a daily progress report on the ongoing installation.
At a meeting with PWD officials, he also reviewed Mohalla Clinics construction work and asked for their completion at the earliest, according to a government statement.
On the installation of CCTV cameras, the Chief Minister asked the PWD to expedite the process and seek necessary approvals for installation of nearly 300,000 CCTV cameras in residential areas.
“CCTV cameras’ installation is an important step, speed it up,” the Chief Minister said.
The Delhi government has been installing CCTV cameras since last month as per the poll promise by Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party.
On Mohalla clinics, he said construction work, hiring of doctors, para-medics and procurement of medicines be done simultaneously to make the new clinics functional at the earliest.
