“There were many potholes on the Sardar Patel Road…we made that area pothole-free in two days!” exclaimed Vinay Kumar, an assistant engineer with the NDMC, who was on field duty for G20 preparations.
Kumar was among the personnel felicitated by the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) for their efforts in preparing the city for the G20 Summit, at an event held at Talkatora Indoor Stadium Thursday.
At the event, Meenakshi Lekhi, Minister of State for External Affairs and Culture, and Delhi Lieutenant Governor (L-G) VK Saxena presented commendation awards to 28 NDMC personnel.

After it poured on the night of the Summit on September 9, Kumar and his team repaired several lights. Mukesh Giri, who was on security duty, said, “I was deployed at the Sardar Patel Marg along with my team. We ensured that no wild animals were found wandering on the roads during the Summit, especially when VIP movement was taking place.”
