Delhi residents divided on city’s clean-up as G20 summit arrives

As the G20 summit arrives in Delhi, India, Narendra Modi's government has begun a 'beautification' scheme for the city. Wild dogs and monkeys have been driven from the streets, while dumps and controversially slum areas, have been covered over to obscure them from the view of dignitaries and overseas guests.
