CM failed to address water, power crisis: BJP.
NEW DELHI: Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari on Tuesday said that Arvind Kejriwal government is a visionless government, which has totally disappointed the people. Mr Tiwari alleged that it is unfortunate that even as people of Delhi are facing extre-me shortage of water and power, Kejriwal government is busy in political dramas.
Mr Tiwari said this in a reply given to an RTI activist that the Delhi Jal Board has admitted that the raw water supply being received by Delhi from both Haryana and Uttar Pradesh has been constantly increasing.
“There has been a unprecedented increase in the raw water supply to Delhi during first four months of this years but surprisingly since Janu-ary, 2018 people of Delhi are facing acute water shortage,” he added.
According to Mr Tiwari, the DJB’s Bawana, Haiderpur, Iradat Nagar plants received 4,64,607 million liters raw water in 2014, three years later in 2017, these plants received 5,57,672 million liters of raw water from Haryana. In first four months of 2018, Delhi has got 1,59,294 million liters of water from Haryana.
“Kejriwal government and tanker mafias have created an artificial water scarcity, if the government had properly treated the raw water received from Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Uttrakhand, and distributed it under a judicious summer plan, all consumers of Delhi would get regular and proper water supply,” said Delhi BJP chief. Mr Tiwari claimed that Delhiites have seen that predecessor governments, despite resource crunch, paid attention to development of the city but Kejriwal government is one such government whose resources are regularly increasing but development has come to a standstill and people are facing extreme water and power shortage.
