Welcoming G20 delegates to the national capital for next month's crucial summit, Delhi Minister Saurabh Bharadwaj said that the city has been decorated "like a bride" on Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's instructions.
"On Arvind Kejriwal's instructions, Delhi has been decorated like a bride for hosting G20 summit. Delhi's roads have been kept clean and beautified. Arrangements have been made so that the tourists who are coming don't face any issues," Saurabh Bharadwaj said speaking to ANI.
The Delhi Minister further said that they expect the G20 delegates to sing Arvind Kejriwal's praise and Delhi's praise when they go back to their respective nations, enamoured by Delhi's "beauty".
"We want that when representatives from different countries go back to their respective nations they praise Arvind Kejriwal's Delhi for its beauty, more so the people of Delhi for being so graceful," Saurabh Bharadwaj said.
