Rai said the AAP government has made arrangements for Chhath Puja at 1,000 locations in city. The development minister, accompanied by senior officers of irrigation and flood control department, Delhi Jal Board (DJB) and revenue department, inspected Haathi Ghat at ITO in New Delhi.
Delhi has around 40 lakh 'Poorvanchali' voters, hailing from eastern Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, who play a key role in elections.
Last year, the Aam Aadmi Party government had made a special financial provision in the 2017-18 Budget for setting up sufficient numbers of Chhath ghats across the city.
