Mr. Ramesh Bidhuri, MP from South Delhi yet again has shown his deep concern about the problems of Delhi by drawing the attention of Government towards the rising water problems in the city.
Mr. Bidhuri, addressing Parliament said I want to grab government attention towards Delhiites who are facing water crisis in Delhi since long time and we haven’t come up with any permanent solution till date.The water shortage we cry about Every time I consider it is a man-made crisis and responsible factors which I think is Delhi-Haryana water supply agreement where in Haryana stop water of our side and don’t release it. Munakcanal was constructed in 1995 to fulfill the water in city is craving drop of water. There is a need to take some action in this context also. Some strong action and activity is required for three dams Project work of Himachal Pradesh namely Renuka, Lakhwar and kalsha which is pending since past 20 years.
Mr. Bidhuri said 70% Population of Delhi is facing this Water Crisis and if we failed to come up with a permanent solution of water problem then it will lead to worst situation and it will increase problem in Future. There are some areas in capital which crave for a drop of water for two days some time continuously and in some areas due to distribution losses, mismanagement of resources, leakages in the supply network are to blame for the shortage of water. Mr. Bidhuri said that my request to Union Cabinet Minister for Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation Miss Uma Bharti to look into this issue and provide some permanent solution which can bring relief to Delhiites from this Crisis.
