Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit inaugurated the Delhi pavilion at the India International Trade Fair in Pragati Maidan on Wednesday. She said it was a marvellous presentation of the success stories in Delhi, which enabled the Capital to nearly become a world-class city.
"The stalls in the pavilion would be able to disseminate the vision and priorities of the Delhi government, which has been working sincerely for the benefit of people across the city," Dikshit said.
A large house sparrow installation was placed at the entrance of the Delhi pavilion. It has been declared the state bird by the Delhi government.
Dikshit said the Tihar Jail stall highlighted the jail's role in helping inmates become a useful section of the society when they are released.
The theme of Delhi Pavilion is "Skilling India". It showcases human resource of the country, including the many skills that have contributed to the "spectacular" industrial growth in India.
"Fourteen years of relentless pursuit of development by the Delhi government have earned a better standard of living for the people of the city. This includes implementation of many welfare schemes. In the process, Delhi has proved to be a dream destination for people from all walks of life. Connectivity has been made easy through Delhi Metro, pollution-free CNG buses and other public transport, flyovers and roads that extend to all parts of the city. Signature Bridge, an engineering marvel, is another upcoming landmark. It will be one-of-its-kind in the country," Dikshit said.
Delhi State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation Ltd (DSIIDC) showcased upcoming projects like an industrial park in Baprola, multi-level manufacturing hub in Rani Khera, an industrial area in Kanjhawla, and various housing projects.
