New Delhi: North Delhi Mu­nic­i­pal Corporatio­n started a stress man­age­ment clinic and coun­selling cen­tre at its head­quar­ters to mark World Men­tal Health Day. Mayor Av­tar Singh in­au­gu­rated the fa­cil­ity in the build­ing, which also houses the south corporatio­n and the in­come tax de­part­ment. Com­mis­sioner Var­sha Joshi said the fa­cil­ity would be avail­able to em­ploy­ees of both the civic bod­ies and the de­part­ment. Stand­ing com­mit­tee chair­man Jai Prakash said it was the duty of the corporatio­n to pro­vide ba­sic ameni­ties to Del­hi­ites and for this a bal­anced mind was very im­por­tant. New Delhi: A protest led by Delhi BJP chief Manoj Ti­wari was held in Bhor­garh In­dus­trial Area of north­west district against the Kejriwal gov­ern­ment for cre­at­ing hur­dles in the com­ple­tion of the Narela-Bawana fly­over. BJP lead­ers said the fly­over was im­por­tant in solv­ing the prob­lem of pol­lu­tion and traf­fic jam in Delhi.

BJP lead­ers had pitched tents in Narela to or­gan­ise the protest and were joined by hun­dreds of party work­ers. Ti­wari said the cen­tral gov­ern­ment had taken the im­por­tant step of con­struct­ing the fly­over-cum-road over­bridge near Bhor­garh In­dus­trial Area, but “Kejriwal stopped its con­struc­tion in the same man­ner he had stopped var­i­ous schemes of the Cen­tre, like Ayush­man Bharat Yo­jna that pro­vides free treat­ment to poor in pri­vate hos­pi­tals.”

“Kejriwal has be­come the en­emy of the peo­ple of Delhi. The Delhi De­vel­op­ment Au­thor­ity wanted to shift some trees for the fly­over con­struc­tion, but the Delhi gov­ern­ment was not giv­ing per­mis­sion for this,” Ti­wari said.
