Water and power will be the key issues on which the Bharatiya Janata Party will contest the upcoming Delhi polls. The party is slated to release a white paper on the “state of water” in the Capital.
Delhi BJP president Vijay Goel on Monday slammed the Congress Government for overcharging people for the water supplied to their homes. Stating that there has been “total mismanagement” of the Jal Board headed by Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, the BJP leader said water bills have been inflated by 30 per cent over the past 15 years.
“People in Delhi have been handed over water bills running into lakhs of rupees due to faulty reading of water meters installed by the Jal Board or private companies brought in by the DJB. The DJB under this government continues to be insensitive towards people of Delhi,” said Mr. Goel.
