Pathways of Delhi are in bad condition. These are narrow, not maintained, full of potholes, electrical works and garbage. While flyovers have light, pathways do not. These are water logged and it is difficult to walk. Huge money is spent of carriage ways. Multiple agencies work on footpaths to make, dig or lay cables. So pathways are always in bad condition even at main locations like Ashram Chowk, ITO etc. Every world class city makes good facility for pedestrians, children and physically challenged persons. Delhi should follow these examples.
