Don't let Haryana cut water supply to Delhi, Kejriwal tells Modi

IANS  |  New Delhi 

Chief Minister on Friday wrote to urging him to persuade to continue supplying the same levels of water to the national capital it has been supplying for the last 22 years.

"I urge you to kindly use your good offices to persuade to continue supplying same levels of water to that it has been supplying for 22 years and not to disrupt it till the issue is decided by the Court," Kejriwal wrote.

He said that had been supplying 1,133 cusecs of water since 1996 and this should not be cut so that does not witness any water scarcity.

He said that any reduction in the water supply will affect the Chandrawal water plant which supplies water in VIP and NDMC areas, along with other places including the railway station and major hospitals.

Kejriwal, in another letter written to on Friday, warned of chaos in the city after May 21 if the reduction in water supply continued.

"If the water supply from Haryana is reduced after May 21, there will be complete chaos in Delhi. It will lead to and order situation in Delhi," Kejriwal said.
