Kejriwal seeks uninterrupted water supply to Delhi 18.5.2018 General News
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal sought the assistance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in ensuring uninterrupted water supply from Haryana to Delhi until further directions from the Supreme Court.In a letter, Kejriwal requested Prime Minister Modi to persuade Haryana to continue supplying the same levels of water to Delhi that it has been supplying for the last 22 years, and to not disrupt it until the top court's decision.Kejriwal argued that if the water supply is reduced post May 21, there could be an unprecedented water shortage, and could even lead to a serious law and order situation.He further claimed that disruption in water supply from Haryana would affect the Chandrawal water treatment plant, which supplies water to New Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) areas, which houses VIP zones like the President's House, Parliament, embassies and major establishments."In addition to affecting the public at large, any disruption in water supply would affect all these establishments

DNA RAIN CHECK: Mumbai Mayor's nullah visit turns starts political mudsliging 17.5.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
Mayor Vishwanath Mahadeshwar inspected desilting work that is underway in major nullahs of the western suburbs on Wednesday. However, what was supposed to be the first citizen's assessment of rain work soon turned political. The Mayor said that if Mumbai faces flooding this monsoon, metro work will be responsible for it. Many storm water drains and sewerage lines have been damaged by haphazard work carried by the state-run MMRDA, he pointed. BMC's work, he assured, will be over before the rains hit the city, while admitting the civic body needs to speed up. BJP group leader Manoj Kotak responded to this with: "Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis is capable of looking at ongoing metro works. They Mayor is siding with corrupt officials and contractors who are not desilting properly. He has no right to comment about metro work." Kotak added that before claiming that Metro work will cause waterlogging, "The mayor should see that nullahs are widened and all the pumping stations are operational." Article ...
