Mumbai: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Saturday that his government would make the water supply in Delhi as good as developed countries and it is hiring an advisor for this purpose.
He also dismissed allegations that the water supply in Delhi was being privatized.
The Chief Minister said, “Some opposition leaders are saying that the water supply in Delhi is being privatized. This can never happen and I assure you this.”
“We are appointing an advisor on how to improve water supply management and also ensure that not a single drop of water is wasted,” Kejriwal said during a digital press conference.
He said that in the capital of developed countries, water is available round the clock with reasonable pressure and does not require submersible pumps.
Kejriwal said, “We will get it done in Delhi. The city’s water supply will be as good as developed nations. Accountability should be fixed for every drop of water and there should be no wastage.”
The Chief Minister also stated in the press conference that the Delhi Government was in talks with Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, and Himachal Pradesh to increase water availability in the national capital.
