BJP on Monday appealed to Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung to form a high-powered committee to find a solution to the problem of public transport in Delhi.

"LG Najeeb Jung should form a high-powered committee under his supervision to find a solution to the problem of public transport. This committee should submit its report on the problems and solution of public transport in Delhi and NCR within three months," Delhi BJP president Harsh Vardhan said.

He said that Delhi needs a foolproof transport policy which has not been framed even after Independence.

"Now, the time has come to frame public and private transport policy so that travelling become safe and comfortable," Vardhan said.

Due to large numbers of vehicles and encroachment, he said, the footpaths have disappeared in the city, which has led to accidents.

The BJP leader also said that there is no bus terminal for private buses in the Capital and such buses are the cause of accident because these are run by transport mafia and there should be provision to control this service also.

"In order to control air and noise pollution in Delhi, it is necessary that the city gets rid of diesel and petrol run vehicles. The experts are of the view that within the next 10 years the population of Delhi will increase by 60 to 70 lakhs. The transport system will have to make provision for this also," Vardhan added.
