Identifying “unbridled influx” of migrants into Delhi as a major challenge, Dikshit blamed the burgeoning population for putting the existing infrastructure under strain and sought help from the Centre to deal with the situation. She said the capital was grappling with “unparalleled and unprecedented” challenges.
“Delhi’s burgeoning population trend is further exacerbated by the continuous and unbridled influx of people from all over the country. Higher wages, better educational and health care facilities, more employment opportunities are some of the factors responsible for the continuous influx,” she said.
