New Delhi: Activists of the Congress and Bhartiya Janata Party today held separate protests outside Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence here 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 cannons to disperse the crowd.
Speaking to IANS, 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 allows private players to make “short purchase” in the peak hours which leads to power cuts and voltage fluctuation.
The women’s wing of the Delhi Pradsh Congress led by Delhi Mahila Congress president Barkha Shukla Singh also staged a noisy demonstration at Mr Kejriwal’s residence on the issue of water and power crisis.
