Delhi: Scarcity BJP’s ‘creation’, says Sanjay Singh

Published - June 18, 2024 01:54 am IST - New Delhi

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Rajya Sabha member Sanjay Singh on Monday alleged that the ongoing water crisis in Delhi has been “deliberately created” by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to “keep the national capital parched”.

He said the party has hatched a conspiracy under which BJP-ruled Haryana refused to release the city’s rightful share of the Yamuna water into the Munak canal, causing the water shortage.

“There is no bigger sin than stopping water. We are not asking for the Haryana’s share of water, we are seeking Delhi’s share. You do not want to give that too. Secondly, when we complain to the Delhi Lieutenant-Governor, instead of resolving the problem, he keeps issuing political statements,” the AAP leader added.
