From Tihar, Kejriwal directs Ministers to take action to address water, power woes

Friday, 14 June 2024 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

Amidst the persisting water and power crises in the national Capital, Delhi Water Minister Atishi and AAP Rajya Sabha MP Raghav Chadha on Thursday met Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal lodged in the Tihar jail and were directed to take measures to curb the problems as soon as possible.

The AAP convener is lodged in Tihar jail's number 2 in the excise policy-linked money laundering case. "Today I met Kejriwal, who is lodged in Tihar jail in a fake case by the central government. But, he still worries about the people of Delhi, more than himself," Atishi said.

"He inquired about the issues related to power and water and he told me that he watched the water crisis in Delhi on television in Tihar," she stated, adding that Kejriwal has directed them to take all necessary steps and arrangements that could be made to overcome the water crisis as soon as possible.

"He has directed all the AAP legislators to go on the ground and take all possible steps to provide water to the people in their areas," she said. Atishi further said that Kejriwal inquired about the power cuts in Delhi which had occurred due to a fire incident in Uttar Pradesh two days ago.

"He told us to hold the meetings with the concerned department officials to prevent the power crisis from happening in the future," she said. The education minister further said that Kejriwal only thinks about the people of Delhi and their problems, even while staying behind bars. According to Tihar sources, both Atishi and Chadha met Kejriwal for half-an-hour in the visitor's room (Mulakati Jangla) in Tihar.
