WHERE IS THE SUMMER ACTION PLAN OF THE CHIEF MINISTER FOR POWER AND WATER
Party President Shri Vijender Gupta has said that the Chief Minister had announced a Summer Action Plan in the month of March for 2 crore people of Delhi. On this occasion, she had assured the people that this year the people will not have to face scarcity of power and water during the summer season and that her Government has prepared such a strong action plan that there will be surplus power and water in Delhi and the people will not have to face any problem in this regard.
10 days ago Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit had announced in Bawana that this summer the maximum demand of power will be 5200 MW and the Government has made arrangements for 5500 MW of power. Similarly she had made tall claims about the avail availability of water. The month of April was not hot and the people did not have to face scorching summer season but in the month of May people are feeling the heat because this month the temperature has gone up to 44°c.
In many areas of
, people are not
getting drinking water for the last 10 days. In West Patel Nagar, Tilak Nagar,
Sangam Vihar, Trans Yamuna areas, Mukherji Nagar, Nehru Vihar, Khanpur, Burari,
Indra Vihar, Sant Nagar, Kaushik Enclave, Kirari, Pratap Vihar, Masjid Mod,
Outer Delhi areas lakhs of people are facing scarcity of power and water. The
people of Khanpur are so much harassed due to this problem that they came out
of their houses and blocked the traffic on BRT corridor. Many people were taken
into custody. In Masjid Moth area water is supplied between 2am to 2.30am (midnight
only). People have to remain awake or pay for getting a bucket of water. Delhi
The people of South and
West Delhi will have to face power cuts between 10am to
5pm because the power supply company in this area has decided to replace the
cable. Hence power will not be supplied the whole day. Shri Gupta has asked the
Government and the DERC if the replacement of cable was necessary then why this
work was not done in the winter season. When people cannot do without power
even for a minute then what is the justification of load shedding for 10 to 5
hours? He has alleged that there is a conspiracy by the power company behind
the replacement of cable in these areas.
