BJP opposes privatization of water supply
BJP Delhi Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta & Leader of Opposition in Delhi Legislative Assembly Prof. Vijay Kumar Malhotra have in a joint press statement strongly condemned privatization of water supply by Chief Minister of Delhi.
Both the leaders told that for the last 14 years Smt. Sheila Dikshit has been the Chief Minister of Delhi and also Chairperson of Delhi Jal Board. But she has failed to provide pure drinking water to the people of Delhi. Hence in order to hide her failure the Chief Minister of Delhi today decided to hand over the Reservoirs of Delhi Jal Board in Vasant Vihar, Malviya Nagar and Mehrauli to the private companies.
They told that the Chief Minister of Delhi who is also Chairperson of Delhi Jal Board has been talking about starting Sonia Vihar Water Treatment Plant since years and she had assured the people of Delhi that just after getting water supply from Sonia Vihar Plant she will supply 24x7 hours water in South Delhi and had also issued advertisements in the newspapers several times in this regard. Chief Minister of Delhi has not been able to supply pure drinking water to the people of Delhi even after three years of commissioning of Sonia Vihar Water Treatment Plant for which she herself responsible.
Now the People of Delhi know that the Chief Minister has failed to provide basic amenities like power & water to the people of Delhi. In the forthcoming elections, the people of Delhi shall give a befitting reply and end the misgovernance of Congress Government.
