JANPATH - A Request to Prime Minister Modi

This Documentary, JANPATH is about Delhi’s Janpath Market and problems faced by Street Vendors. Municipal Authorities and Police regularly harass them, however with the launch of Smart City campaign they are severely affected. On the other hand “rural-urban migration” is at it’s peak. Villages of the world are emptying out and people are moving to cities. It’s the largest movement in history. By 2050, Delhi will the world’s largest city, in terms of population.

Governments and regulatory authorities are ignorant about this movement. Instead of aggressively working on the cities and equipping it for growing population, they are building Smart cities. Concept of Smart City has failed. It takes up huge amount of resources and serves very small segment of population.

We hope to throw some light in this direction.
