The Delhi government on Sunday initiated the development works of the 12 unauthorised colonies. Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal inaugurated the development works. On November Delhi Chief Minister said the AAP government will construct roads, sewer, stormwater drains, and water pipelines simultaneously across all unauthorised colonies in the national capital. "We will take up the work of constructing roads, sewer, stormwater drains and water pipelines in a single time frame in all unauthorised colonies of Delhi," CM Kejriwal said.
"As per the concept, there will be no drains on the roads, instead, all the stormwater and household water will go directly in the underground pipelines, recharging the water table," the Delhi Chief Minister added. This, he said, will lead to a decrease in dengue and malaria cases in the national capital as clogged open drains would be eliminated.
