Delhi: Lt Governor of Delhi, VK Saxena, on August 20, 2022, visited the Vasant Udyan in Vasant Vihar and took stock of the development work done in the park. On a round of the expanse, LG directed that more cultural events be organised in the amphitheatre area of the park, and local artists and performers be encouraged to perform in the park. He directed that the DDA won't charge these artists for using the facilities.
