The DJB Vice-Chairman distributed relief material and food packets to the flood victims seeking shelter in the camps.
The Delhi government has established relief camps in schools and dharamshalas across the six flood-affected districts, ensuring appropriate arrangements for food, drinking water, and sanitation. Bharti interacted with the residents of the camps, assuring them of the government’s support.
The temporary closure of Wazirabad, Okhla, and Chandrawal water treatment plants due to the floods has affected water supply in some areas. However, since Monday night, all water treatment plants have resumed operations at full capacity, normalising the water supply in the previously affected areas.
Bharti urged all political parties to prioritise the welfare of Delhi’s citizens instead of engaging in petty politics. He assured people whose homes were inundated, of the government’s support in recovering their losses and possessions. Stringent instructions have been issued to ensure an uninterrupted supply of potable water in these camps, with designated officers overseeing its distribution.
The temporary closure of Wazirabad, Okhla, and Chandrawal water treatment plants posed a challenge, but the efforts of DJB officers and employees have successfully restored their operations. Presently, all water treatment plants are functioning at their full capacity, ensuring a normal water supply in all areas previously affected by the floods.
