Netizens Questioned This Urbanism

While people were replying to Anand’s tweet in a positive manner, some netizens asked about how will these high-class bus stops be maintained and by whom. Some called it a waste of money. In response, Anand replied that they will have the green rooftops and sidebars since it is an open space and that they will place solar panels on other rooftops as can be done.
