New Delhi: Delhi Chief Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Government has drawn immense flak on micro-blogging platform Twitter following a video widely shared on social media which throws light on the distressing water crisis in the national capital.
A large group of women can be seen waiting with water vessels on the footpath at Vivekanand camp in South Delhi’s Chanakyapuri area in the video shared by news agency ANI and immediately as the New Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) water tanker arrives, a few of them climb atop the running water tanker in order to ensure they get water.
Flouting all social distancing norms amid the Covid-19 pandemic, they then put in pipes to fill their buckets while others waited for their turn.
“Dear aderniye ArvindKejriwal thanks for these 27 Oxygen plants which are Installed by HCL Now find donor for 54 Hydrogen plants from And mix them to form H20, i.e. Water. Delhiites are struggling to find water,” posted a Twitter user.
“Kejriwal’s Delhi model at work!” wrote another.
Another social media user while taking a jibe at Keirwal tweeted, “Waah kya scene hai. Thank you Lord Arvind Kejriwal. You are helping people to do workout without gym even in lockdown.”
Several people on the social media also criticized the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) at the Centre alleging the NMDC falls under its jurisdiction.
“This is NDMC, which comes under bjp govt. please mention that,” posted one named Ranjeet on Twitter.
“Shame on BJP…If u can’t run NDMC, handover to someone who can,” wrote another.
