Even as the water supply itself is short, whatever water comes through taps is contaminated. People are suffering due to water-borne diseases, Tiwari said.
On one hand people are getting hefty bills and on the other they are forced to spend heavily on buying bottled water for drinking.
The BJP leader said while appointing the new Water Minister Rajender Pal Gautam the Chief Minister had said that due to negligence of erstwhile Water Minister Kapil Mishra people of Delhi were not only facing water shortage but also getting hefty bills.
While appointing the new Minister, the Chief Minister had assured the people that now they will get sufficient and pure drinking water and there will be no need to buy bottled water.
Delhi BJP President added that despite Chief Minister’s assurances water supply continues to be extremely short in the unauthorized colonies and villages, even in the areas where water supply is regular the water is highly contaminated. People are forced to setup R.O. system and water purifiers or buy bottled water.
Tiwari also said that Delhi Jal Board is a white elephant where corruption is rampant even as people are facing acute water shortage and problem due to contaminated water and sewers overflowing on roads.
According to Tiwari, there is neither regular sewer cleaning system drawn up nor any regular water supply line maintenance work in Delhi Jal Board.
