In what may turn out to be a good news for the capital’s dwellers, Minister of Culture and Tourism Kapil Mishra has said he believes in improving the city’s nightlife and that attempts are underway in this direction.
“One thing missing in Delhi is a vibrant nightlife. I mean it is not just about bars and shopping malls but even generally where do people go out to at night in Delhi,” Mishra asked at a culture conclave here on Saturday.
The minister added that the Capital had enough opportunities to develop its nightlife.
“I mean just look at Chandni Chowk area. There are so many eateries all around and if we can give permission to them to remain open throughout the night that is going to change a lot of things. People can just come walk around, eat and enjoy.
“For now, we only go for movies or to India Gate. Other than these there are no options for the people. We are working on this and hopefully we will see some results,” he said.
The minister further stressed that the law and order problems exist because of the absence of nightlife and once a vibrant and thriving nightlife sets in the Capital, such problems will be done away with.
The minister was speaking at an one-day Culture Conclave organised by Mail Today, a tabloid newspaper in the Capital.
