Shri Amit Shah said, after inaugurating the Waste to Energy Plant, that some people say that it is being inaugurated because of elections, which is not a good thing. We are not doing Bhoomi Pujan of this plant. The plant is ready. He further said that the Modi Government is working to make Delhi garbage free.

Such heaps and mountains of garbage will not be seen in future. He further said that the people of Delhi have to decide whether they like the politics of advertising or the politics of ‘development’.
