Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today directed the Public Works Department secretary to suspend the officials concerned for negligence in de-silting drains during his field inspection in south Delhi's Ambedkar Nagar.
After his field visit, the chief minister tweeted, "Did a spot inspection of de-silting of drains. Drains de-silted only on paper. Ordered strong action against guilty officers".
In a statement, the government said that during the inspection, it was found that despite official paper reports of drains being 100 per cent de-silted, they were choked and even the locals complained to the chief minister that no de-siliting work was carried out.
