Making Chandni Chowk a heritage hub will be my first priority – Jai Prakash Aggarwal

New Delhi: Chandni Chowk parliamentary constituency is not only an electoral Lok Sabha constituency, it is also a historical heritage in which the history of Delhi and the country resides. There are many monuments in Chandni Chowk which tell about our country and its history. After winning the elections, my priority will be to make Chandni Chowk a heritage hub.

Senior leader Shri Jaiprakash Aggarwal, the joint candidate of Congress and Aam Aadmi Party alliance from Chandni Chowk Lok Sabha parliamentary constituency, said this while releasing his “Vision Manifesto” for Chandni Chowk constituency in a press conference on Sunday. Senior leader Chatar Singh, Municipal Corporation House leader Jitendra Kumar Kochhar, and prominent business leader Pradeep Gupta were mainly present.

Shri Jaiprakash Aggarwal said that the history of Delhi and the country resides in Chandni Chowk, it is not only an electoral constituency but also a heritage. With time this area expanded and the problems here also increased but these were not solved. From the point of view of tourism, Chandni Chowk is considered to be the main area of Delhi, lakhs of tourists from India and abroad come here every year and see the historical monuments of India. His top priority will be to make Chandni Chowk a heritage hub so that Chandni Chowk area can get world class recognition and at the same time it will promote tourism.

Shri Jaiprakash Aggarwal said that every year a “Global Food Festival” will be organized in Chandni Chowk, so that tourists coming from India and abroad will be able to enjoy the world famous food of Chandni Chowk. Apart from this, this festival will also give a boost to the industry and business of Chandni Chowk. Shri Aggarwal said that apart from this, about 100 years old Roshanara Club which is closed for the last six months and about 500 families working in it are on the verge of starvation due to unemployment. But after being elected as MP, opening Roshanara Club and providing employment to people is also his priority.
