Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal claimed on Saturday that Delhi was the only city in the country that enjoyed 24-hour electricity supply. The remarks came during his padyatra in Malviya Nagar when people complained about power outages. Kejriwal assuaged them by ordering the installation of transformers in the area to prevent distribution problems.
Having directed his cabinet ministers to hit the ground and resolve the people’s problems directly, Kejriwal himself was in Malviya Nagar assembly constituency with the local MLA Somnath Bharti on Saturday. “Delhi is the only city in the country that offers 24-hour power supply to all its residents,” he told the people of the locality. “We have observed that there are some pockets in the city that have power and water supply problems. In the case of power, the areas where local faults have caused problems will immediately be given new transformers.”
As for the problems related to water, Kejriwal said, “In many colonies, we have already laid down pipelines and these areas will begin to receive piped water within a week. They don’t have to rely on tankers any longer.” Read more
