UR­BAN DE­VEL­OP­MENT MIN­IS­TER TAK­ING CHARGE He was shifted from sur­face trans­port to the min­istry of ur­ban de­vel­op­ment in Jan­uary 2011 and ex­pected to bring in in­vest­ment for in­fra­struc­ture.

DE­LAYED AC­TION The min­is­ter took nearly a year for an ‘in prin­ci­ple’ clear­ance of the Re­gional Rapid Tran­sit Sys­tem to pro­vide fast con­nec­tiv­ity be­tween Delhi and its satel­lite towns such as Meerut, Al­war and Pa­ni­pat. For over two years, the min­istry has re­fused to take a de­ci­sion on reg­u­lar­i­sa­tion of colonies in var­i­ous cities. Delhi alone has 1,600 such colonies.
