AAP MLAs visit residence of Jal Shakti Minister Paatil amid water crisis

Monday, 17 June 2024 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs visited the residence of Union Jal Shakti Minister CR Paatil to address the issue of Haryana’s BJP government withholding Delhi's rightful share of water on Sunday morning. Led by Chief Whip (ruling party) in Delhi Legislative Assembly and MLA Dilip Pandey, the delegation submitted a letter urging the Union Minister for Jal Shakti to facilitate immediate relief by ensuring Haryana supplies water to Delhi.

Pandey emphasized the urgency of the crisis, noting that the water level in the Yamuna is declining, which is exacerbating the situation amid Delhi's scorching heat. He also criticized the political maneuvering surrounding the issue, asserting that the AAP and Delhi government are focused on practical solutions. The delegation included former minister Rajendra Pal Gautam,  Rakhi Birla, Durgesh Pathak, and other MLAs.

Pandey said that the water crisis inside Delhi is getting serious every moment. Due to the falling water level of Yamuna, the production of water in Delhi is decreasing. Due to this, the supply of water is being reduced in many areas. There is severe heat and in this scorching heat, water is life. Water crisis means life crisis.

He said that all the MLAs of the AAP wrote a letter to Paatil on Saturday, emailed, and messaged all his public and personal phone numbers and told him that there is a serious water crisis inside Delhi. This problem can be solved with a little coordination from you.

Pandey, while showing some videos and photos of Munak Canal, said that water mafias are stealing water by installing pipes in Munak Canal. Hiranki is near Burari.
