Activists of the Congress and Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday held separate protests outside Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence against the water and electricity supply crisis in the capital.
BJP workers led by party state president Satish Upadhyay during their protest demanded adequate supply of water and electricity to Delhi’s residents. Police used water canons to disperse the crowd.
Delhi BJP spokesperson Pravin Shankar said, “We feel that there is adequate amount of water and electricity to supply to Delhiites, but the Delhi government is unable to manage the resources.”
He also alleged that the Delhi government was allowing private players to make “short purchase” in the peak hours which was leading to power cuts and voltage fluctuations.
The women’s wing of the Delhi Pradesh Congress led by Delhi Mahila Congress president, Barkha Shukla Singh, also staged a demonstration outside Kejriwal’s residence on the issue.
