Same Blame-Game Repeated: LG Saxena Attacks Delhi Govt On Water Crisis

Delhi LG VK Saxena delhi water crisis

Delhi LG VK Saxena on Saturday launched an attack on the AAP-led Delhi government over the Delhi water crisis, saying that the same blame-game story is repeated by the government year after year.

“Heart-rending scenes of people running after tankers and incidents of water shortage are not new in Delhi. This has been happening year after year and every year, the same blame-game story is repeated by the Government on social media and in press conferences,” Saxena said in an official statement.

VK Saxena also expressed his anguish at the AAP government’s approach to governance and service delivery in Delhi.

“The AAP Government will do well to go to the drawing board and revisit its model of governance rather than abusing, accusing and scooting through social media and press conferences. The absence of seriousness in governance is disturbing. As the Constitutional Head of Delhi, I feel anguished at the approach of the AAP government, on almost every subject concerning governance and delivery of services to the people of Delhi,” Delhi LG said.

Meanwhile, Delhi Minister Atishi, who is sitting on an indefinite hunger strike against the water crisis, said on Saturday that she tried “everything” but was left with no choice but to sit on a fast when the Haryana government didn’t agree to supply the required quantity of water.

“This is the second day of my fast. There is an acute shortage of water in Delhi. Delhi receives water from its neighbouring states. Delhi receives a total of 1005 MGD of water that is supplied to the houses in Delhi. Of this, 613 MGD of water comes from Haryana but for the past several weeks, it has been releasing only 513 MGD. Due to this, more than 28 lakh people in Delhi are not receiving water. I tried everything but when the Haryana government didn’t agree to supply water, I was left with no choice but to sit on a fast,” Atishi said in a video posted on her X handle.

The AAP leader, who is also the Water Minister in Delhi government, began her strike on Friday at Bhogal, near Jangpura. She was accompanied by Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh and other party leaders.

Meanwhile, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal’s wife, Sunita Kejriwal, read a message from the Chief Minister, who is under judicial custody, and said Arvind Kejriwal is ‘hurt’ to see Delhi’s public suffering from water scarcity.

“Kejriwal says that when I see on TV, the way Delhi people are suffering due to water scarcity, it hurts me. I hope Atishi’s ‘tapasya’ will succeed and residents of Delhi will get relief. I wish all the best to Atishi, may God protect her,” she stated. (ANI)
