New Delhi, 19th May.  BJP has asked to Delhi Government where is the widely publicized Summer Action Plan for providing sufficient power and water in this scorching summer season.

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 Delhi, 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.

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.
