"We feel that in Delhi, it (BRT) was a good concept but it was implemented badly here," Kejriwal said. Earlier this month, facing criticism, the Aam Aadmi Party government decided to scrap the controversial corridor between Moolchand and Ambedkar Hagar in South Delhi built by the earlier Sheila Dikshit dispensation at around Rs 150 crore to encourage public transport.

"We are now going to scrap BRT corridor (from Moolchand to Ambedkar Nagar), but we will introduce new BRT corridors in Delhi with improved form in future," Kejriwal cited. Recalling his experiences of travelling in crowded buses as a nightmare, the Chief Minister called for a better transport system that can be used by every section of the society.

"I have travelled in buses several times. I know that travelling in a bus packed with passengers is nightmare. We have to make the transport system better in next five years. We need to create such public transport system which could be used by every section of society including poor and rich people," he said.
