Instead of curbing pollutants in the Yamuna, Kejriwal govt allowed it to increase with every passing day, says BJP
On Tuesday the BJP’s Delhi unit pointed out that the Arvind Kejriwal government not only failed on every front of governance and development but also failed in cleaning the Yamuna river — the lifeline of the national capital — is “absolute”.
It’s really shameful that Chief Minister Kejriwal calls Yamuna a pious river but has done nothing in the last eight years of power. All concerned departments of the Delhi government are it the Delhi Jal Board, Flood & Irrigation Department, or the PWD instead of curbing the falling of pollutants into the Yamuna have allowed it to increase with every passing day. DJB has failed to install a requisite number of STPs while PWD has failed to remove solid pollutants from the drains under it. The Flood & Irrigation department has failed Delhiites by not even being able to keep Yamuna’s flood area banks clean, Delhi BJP’s Working President Virendra Sachdeva alleged.
The situation has so deteriorated that it has forced the NGT to form a high-level committee to clean up the Yamuna river under the Lt. Governor of Delhi keeping away the Chief Minister from it.
After NGT’s order to formation of a High-Level Committee on Monday, the Chief Minister owes a reply to the people of Delhi over his government’s failure to clean Yamuna and manage drains falling into it.
