‘Water Taxi from Sonia Vihar to Jaitpur’
We want to develop tourism spots at the banks of Yamuna but due to the ignorance of Delhi government, we are unable to execute these projects. A similar project to launch water taxis from Sonia Vihar to Jaitpur has already been initiated by the Central government but because of the lack of cooperation from the Delhi government’s side, the people of Delhi have been deprived of such tourism services.MP Manoj Tiwari
