‘Samples from 16 sewage plants failed quality tests’

Sunday, 14 August 2022 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

The Delhi BJP on Saturday claimed a recent Government report has shown that samples from 16 sewage treatment plants have failed quality tests and demanded that Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal fix responsibility in the matter.

The BJP's Delhi unit president Adesh Gupta said he will write to Lt Governor V K Saxena demanding action over the sub-standard performance of the sewage treatment plants (STPs) of the Delhi Government. The party's workers will also stage a protest outside Kejriwal's residence, he said in a press conference.

"A recent report by Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC) has shown that in 16 out of 26 STPs, the samples did not meet the specified chemical parameters, including that of biological oxygen demand," Gupta said.
