As Delhi stares at water crisis in the peak summer months, chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has directed to cut supply to even the VIP areas exempting Prime Minister, President and emergency services if there was a shortage of water in the city. Speaking in the Delhi Assembly,  Kejriwal said in case of any water shortage, it will be felt by all VIPs except a few and attacked the BJP-ruled Haryana for “cutting” supply of raw water to the city after the Delhi Assembly polls.

“Before the Delhi poll, the Haryana government was supplying us water, but soon after the exit poll, they have stopped their supply. There should be no politics over water. So this year, if there is any shortage, then the DJB should equally supply it in the city. Water supply shortage should be faced by all the VIPs, starting from me. Only Prime Minister, President, Embassies and emergency services will be exempted,”  Kejriwal said.

Currently, all VIPs, including Union and Delhi ministers, MPs and top bureaucrats get uninterrupted water supply. The DJB had alleged that since the AAP came to power, supply of water from Haryana through Munak canal has dropped substantially. It has been maintaining that due to reduction in supply of raw water from Haryana, the production of potable water at its Water Treatment Plants in Dwarka, Bawana, Nangloi and Haiderpur has dropped considerably.
