Protesting “water crisis” and “lack of civic facilities” in unauthorised colonies here, particularly those in South Delhi, BJP activists today staged a demonstration outside Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence.
“South Delhi, especially Mehrauli and beyond, is almost parched with water reaching once in three days in most unauthorised colonies as well as villages,” BJP South Delhi MP Ramesh Bidhuri, who was leading the protest, said.
Alleging that the power outages and water crisis witnessed in Kejriwal regime were “unforeseen”, he said 155 unauthorised colonies in South Delhi were facing “worst” power cuts of up to six hours.
“Despite the Centre’s directive, the Kejriwal government has not moved a single file for approval of unauthorised colonies or to start basic civic services for the residents living there,” Bidhuri claimed.
The BJP MP warned that the inhabitants of unauthorised colonies in South Delhi will launch an agitation against Delhi government if their problems remain un-addressed till the end of June.
