Harsh Vardhan criticise Kejriwal's free water distribution in Delhi
When the decision regarding free water distribution in Delhi floated around, Delhiites were extremely happy, giving them hope of a better Delhi. It is also seen as a promise fulfilled by Arvind Kejriwal on becoming Delhi's Chief Minister. According to the report it has been decided that 2,000 litres of free water would be available to all domestic users with functional meters implying 666 litres of free water per day to each and every household, which has a regular water connection.
BJP's MLA Harsh Vardhan raised questions on this free water distribution in Delhi and questioned Aam Aadmi Party about it. Though, he pretended to welcome this decision, but he was also critical. He had some points, which he feels that Kejriwal should answer. “I need to know that how can they give free water to people, as large number of people in Delhi do not have meter connections.”
He also said that there are people who resides in slums or on the roadside and questioned about the possibility of providing them with free water. “They are going to rise the prices of water up to 10 per cent from 1st January at the same time, it as a hypocrisy with people and is ridiculous.”
He also wrote a letter to Arvind Kejriwal about privatization of water in the city, which is bad for the city, as people associated with it are getting harassed, so he asked him to take a decision on this privatization issue of water supply in Delhi.
These are some important points, which has been put forward by Harsh Vardhan, who was talking to the media, and he also concluded by stating about the loopholes in the decision, which needs to be rectified.
