CM kicks-off Rs 84 crore sewer project at Burari
NEW DELHI: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal laid the foundation stone for sewer project of worth Rs 84 crore in Burari on Sunday.
After taking the portfolio of the water department for the first time, this was his first inauguration of the water project.
"In the next two years, we will ensure proper sewer in every colony of Delhi," Kejriwal said.
He also assured that the government will ensure water and roads in these places.
The minister said that AAP government is determined to develop these places because poor people stay in colonies. Kejriwal said that we would change the life of these people with development and not by just assurances.
This year, Delhi Cabinet approved a proposal to allow one more department to carry out projects in the colonies, apart from the Delhi State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (DSIIDC).
The cabinet also passed the Urban Development Department's proposal to allow the Irrigation and Flood Control Department to also carry out works in unauthorised colonies.
Earlier, the Delhi State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (DSIIDC) is the lone agency to carry out civic projects, including constructing drains and roads in unauthorised colonies.
