DELHI school students are evidently becoming increasingly environment conscious. Recently, Chief Minister (CM) Madan Lal Khurana reeled under a barrage of questions and suggestions from students of the Delhi Public School, Mathura Road: why can't Delhi have separate lanes for cyclists, ensuring a low vehicular population? How about neighbourhood committees for keeping the colonies clean? Cynicism about government agencies surfaced, with one child suggesting that garbage collection and disposal be handed over to private parties. The kids promised to run neighbourhood parks if the government chips in its bit.
They reluctantly let the CM run through his official speech, but only after he promised to make the area near the school a horn free zone.
