'24x7 water': Delhi CM's promise to capital residents, blames delay on Covid
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal made a substantial promise to the residents of the capital.
He vowed to ensure 24x7 clean running water in all houses in the next 5 years.
Kejriwal said that the process for the same had started with the Delhi Jal Board initiating the hiring of a consultant to advise the authorities on how to go about implementing their plan.
The CM said that the process would have begun in March or April 2020 but was derailed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Water woes plague many areas of the capital with residents depending on water tankers for their basic needs.
Delhi Jal Board reportedly hired over 1,000 tankers to deal with peak summer demand this year.
