Taking note of the growing discontent among people over water and power crisis in the capital, Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Saturday said that all ministers of her government would personally supervise and monitor the situation.

The MLA's and councillors of the respective areas would also assist the ministers in this regard, she said after inaugurating the commissioning of 36 High Yield tube-wells in Palla, Burari and Iradat Nagar.

She insisted that availability of water in the city could be enhanced substantially if leakages and wastage amounting to more that 40 per cent could be controlled.

The commissioning of the tube wells is a part of the Delhi Jal Board's scheme to install 110 High Yield tube-wells at a cost of Rs. 9.75 crore to supply water to the rural areas of North and North-West Delhi.
