Water woes: BJP takes to streets to protest against negligence by AAP Government

Monday, 17 June 2024 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

With residents of the national Capital facing water crisis in the continuing heatwave, the Delhi BJP on Sunday took to streets in various parts of Delhi to protest negligence by the AAP Government leading to shortage of water.

Under the leadership of Delhi BJP President Virendra Sachdeva, BJP MPs, MLAs, councillors, and provincial, district, and divisional officials protested at 14 major locations in Delhi.

Delhi BJP leaders took to the streets as the voice of the people, exposing the dirty politics of the Aam Aadmi Party regarding water and demanding the resignation of Water Minister Atishi, who, along with tanker mafias, has left Delhi thirsty.

MP Manoj Tiwari, Ramvir Singh Bidhuri, Kamaljeet Sehrawat, Yogendra Chandolia, and Bansuri Swaraj  addressed 'Matka Phod' protests at various locations, exposing the black market of water by the Aam Aadmi Party.

Addressing the protest at Laxmi Nagar Chowk, Sachdeva stated that the water shortage in Delhi is due to the mismanagement and negligence of the Kejriwal government, not natural causes. Vice President Lata Gupta, District President Sanjay Goyal, MLAs O P Sharma, Abhay Verma, and Anil Vajpayee, and other officials were present.

Sachdeva further stated that the water theft and mismanagement began when Arvind Kejriwal himself was the Chairman of the Jal Board, which has no accounts since his tenure. Kejriwal is responsible for bringing the Jal Board from a profit of Rs 600 crore to a loss of Rs 73,000 crore.

Sachdeva also accused AAP MLAs Prakash Jarwal, Bhavna Gaur, Dinesh Mohangia, and others of turning water supply into a racket aligning with tanker mafias.

BJP President highlighted that news reports reveal private water connections being given in AAP MLA Durgesh Pathak's area for Rs 35,000. The water crisis is a result of AAP's incompetence.

MP Manoj Tiwari, addressing the protest at Durgapuri Chowk, criticized the Kejriwal government for its continuous birth of corruption. Tiwari recalled that while in jail, Kejriwal spoke about water and electricity for Delhiites, but failed to address these issues after coming out, causing increase in suffering for the people of Delhi.

South Delhi MP Ramvir Singh Bidhuri, addressing the protest at Sangam Vihar, described the Jal Board under the Kejriwal government as the biggest center of corruption. BJP MLAs raising this issue in the assembly were expelled, but now the truth is being revealed.

At Najafgarh, Kamaljeet Sehrawat, addressing the protest near a water tank, highlighted that the water crisis is evidence of Kejriwal's negligence. The Dwarka Jal Board officials were shown the leakage today, revealing the wastage of water.

Yogendra Chandolia, addressing the protest at Jahangirpuri, pointed out that AAP leaders blame the Haryana government instead of controlling rampant water theft in Delhi. BJP leaders showed that Haryana supplies more than enough water to Delhi.

Bansuri Swaraj, addressing the protest in front of the Delhi Jal Board office at R.K. Puram, stated that the water shortage in Delhi is an artificial crisis created by the AAP government. The AAP government has done nothing for the Jal Board's infrastructure in a decade, leading to 54% wastage or theft. Former MLA Anil Sharma and other officials were present.

Media Head Praveen Shankar Kapoor, lead the protest by Chandni Chowk District BJP at Sadar Thana Road, accused the Kejriwal government of the biggest scam, involving Rs 73,000 crore loan and grant to the Delhi Jal Board, with no accounts maintained.
