Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal says that even VIPs are going to face water cut in case of shortage in the city. No excuses for any person and family with political background.
This is the time that city stares at water crisis. In the month of summer, huge water scarcity will be there. And Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said few words according to this. No matter whether a VIP or a normal man, water supply will be stopped in case of scarcity.
Ha has issued direction to cut supply to even VIPs barring the Prime Minister, the President and the diplomatic missions in case of water shortage in the city of Delhi.
It was not a speech but true, Arvind said in the assembly meeting. All the VIps too will face the brunt instead of a comman man if the city is with shortage of wate.
The brunt of the shortage will be faced by each and everyone excluding the President, the Prime Minister, hospitals and embassies.
All the Cabinet ministers in the Centre and Delhi, all VIPs, including himself will have the water cut in town if the situation is like this..
“Those who have less in life should have more in law… if there is going to be a water cut, it should be in my house as well,” Kejriwal said.
Kejriwal also said, “Before the elections, the Haryana government was supplying Delhi water but after the exit polls it stopped. There should be no politics on such issues. So, this year, if there is a water shortage in Delhi, only the poor should not face the scarcity. It should be faced by all citizens equally starting with me. Only the President, the Prime minister, embassies and emergency services will be exempted”.
After passing the vote-on-account, Kejriwal in the Delhi Assembly meeting said, “My government is for the poor and the middle-class but we are not against the rich. At least, there is one government for them. Other governments are for industrialists. But there is nothing wrong with being rich, if you have worked hard for it.”
It seems that the problem is all about the citizens of the city including the celebrities but not only for a common man.
At present, Delhi need around 1,100 million gallons per day (mgd) on average. But Delhi Jal Board supplies only around 800 mgd water across the city.
It is said that by the end of the 12th Five-Year Plan in 2017, the demand is projected to touch around 1,400 mgd.
