Severe scarcity of drinking water in Delhi due to increase of ammonia in raw water


Holding the Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, Chairperson of DJB directly responsible for stopping water supply to 50 percent population of Delhi due to increase of ammonia in the Yamuna water to dangerous level, BJP Delhi Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta has said that stopping water supply in Delhi is the result of conspiracy between Delhi Government, Haryana Government and Central Government.  Government is again and again hatching conspiracy to harass crores of people of Delhi for getting drinking water. He has demanded high level judicial enquiry into this conspiracy.  

Under the orders of Supreme Court, Yamuna water is shared between Delhi and Haryana. In spite of this, Haryana Government stops supply of Delhi’s share of water dozen times every year. At present Congress Party is in power in Haryana, Delhi and Centre. Had these Governments been serious about the share of Delhi’s water then this problem could have been solved earlier. There is no big source of water in Delhi. Hence the people of Delhi have to depend on water from Uttrakhand, Haryana and UP. There is large number of factories in Haryana, Sonipat, Panipat and other districts. These factories discharge their polluted water into Yamuna.  This is the reason why the quantity of ammonia in Yamuna passing through Delhi is increasing so much that it becomes dangerous for the people drinking water.

Situation arises dozens of time every year that the water treatment plants have to be shut down. During the last two days the quantity of ammonia increased to 2.8 ppm which is dangerous for human consumption. The quantity of ammonia may come down if Haryana releases additional water to Delhi. Delhi Government has not made any effort in this regard during the last 48 hours. Delhi Government has not made any emergency provision for the supply of water in Delhi. The quantity of ground water and number of tankers in Delhi are not sufficient to meet the requirement.  Due to this, there is great scarcity of drinking water in Delhi for the last two days and Delhi Government and the Central Government are not sensitive about it.
