Delhi water shortage can be resolved easily: Khattar

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, June 12

To amicably resolve the issue of supply of water by Haryana to Delhi, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has drawn the attention of Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal to the alleged shortage of about 60 million gallons per day (MGD) stating that it is just about 6.7 per cent of the total treatment capacity of more than 900 MGD.

This, he added, could easily be resolved through internal actions of the Delhi Jal Board (DJB).

In a demi-official letter sent to Kejriwal as a reply to his letter, Khattar wrote, “The task of maintaining a particular level of the Wazirabad pond has to be performed by the DJB itself.”

The Haryana Chief Minister also pointed out the controversial stance of the Delhi Government by referring to the demi-official letter written by Kejriwal on May 16.
