Delhi Water Crisis: AAP Demands Pipeline Protection, BJP Blames Arvind Kejriwal

Amid a severe water crisis in Delhi, Water Minister Atishi has requested police protection for the city’s water pipelines to prevent potential sabotage. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government claims that the Delhi Jal Board (DJB) found evidence of deliberate damage to water supply pipelines, exacerbating the shortage. In response, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has blamed the AAP government for the crisis and staged protests.

Atishi’s letter to Police Commissioner Sanjay Arora highlights the urgency of protecting major pipelines from miscreants. She reported that the DJB’s patrolling teams discovered significant damages, including cut bolts in the South Delhi Rising Mains pipeline, suggesting foul play.

AAP’s Appeal for Protection: Atishi has asked for a 15-day deployment of police personnel to patrol and safeguard the water pipelines, which she describes as Delhi’s lifelines.

Claims of Sabotage: The DJB reported a major leakage in the South Delhi Rising Mains, where several large bolts had been cut, indicating intentional damage.

BJP’s Protest:
BJP MP Kamaljeet Sehrawat led a protest in Najafgarh, criticizing the Delhi government for its handling of the water crisis and the rising cost of private water tankers.

Appeal to Central Government:
AAP MLAs visited Union Jal Shakti Minister CR Patil’s residence, urging him to address the crisis and improve interstate water coordination.

Request to Haryana:
