Kejriwal inaugurates water pipelines for unauthorised colonies
The Delhi government is committed towards making potable water supply accessible to each household in Delhi. In order to achieve this objective, the Delhi Jal Board has decided to supply water in eight unauthorised colonies of Budh Vihar Phase-II. Water in these colonies will be provided from the Haiderpur Water Treatment Plant through Rohini UGR, Sector-23.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday inaugurated the supply of potable water through pipe line networks laid by the DJB in eight unauthorised colonies of Rithala Assembly Constituency.
On this occasion, the Delhi Jal Board chairman Kapil Mishra, area MLA Mahender Goel, the Board’s chief executive officer Keshav Chanra, along with other senior officials of the DJB were also present here.
The commissioning of this UGR/BPS will benefit 1.20 lakh people residing in Veer Singh Colony, Veer Singh Colony Extension, Budh Vihar Phase-II, Mange Ram Park Extension, Shyam Colony, Harsh Dev Park, Mange Ram Park and Budh Vihar Phase-I and Phase-II. DJB caters to the longstanding demands of the residents of these areas.
Speaking on the occasion, Kejriwal said: “On the auspicious occasion of Diwali, I am delighted to see that adequate water will now be available in the unauthorised colonies of Rithala. DJB has done a commendable job and their hard work is set to bring remarkable changes in the lives of the residents of these eight colonies”.
“It has been our focus to ensure access to potable water supply especially to residents of the unauthorised colonies. I am hopeful; the water supply will result in better living conditions for the residents of this area and will also lead to an improved environment,” said Mishra.
