India is on the brink of another humanitarian crisis even as it is grappling with the mass exodus of migrant workers. Lakhs of truck drivers are stuck in limbo, stranded on the roads in abysmal conditions without food or shelter as no movement is being allowed.
More than 6 lakh registered trucks are stranded across the country, actual numbers maybe even more. I visit the largest transport hub in Asia—Sanjay Gandhi Transport Nagar. These drivers have been stranded for more than 10 days now with nowhere to go. Listen to what they say
Swamped in close quarters with no permission to move, the drivers are living with an eminent fear of either contracting the virus or dying of hunger. "Corona chodhho banda bhook se hi mar jayega," one driver says. #LockdownWithoutPlan #COVID2019

Firms that didn't win the project had proposed extending the Central Vista up to the banks of Yamuna, converting North and South Blocks into archival spaces, the Parliament building into a museum and erecting a new obelisk akin to the Washington Monument overlooking the Rajpath.
This firm CP Kukreja Architects had proposed that the Central Vista would run from the Yamuna in the east to the Delhi Ridge. It also proposed the creation of a pair of “semi-public” streets that would run between the buildings with a new underground Metro route connecting CV.
New Delhi based Sikka Associates Architects had also proposed a mono rail loop around central vista, public plazas with underground traffic interchange, new Sandad Bhawan next to a new office building for PMO and a 'garden of peace' among others.
