Haryana CM writes to Kejriwal on water shortage

Chandigarh, June 12: Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Tuesday wrote to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on the current water shortage of about 60 million gallons per day (MGD) in the national capital, saying it is just about 6.7 per cent of the total treatment capacity of more than 900 million gallons per day (MGD).
This can be resolved easily through internal actions of the Delhi Jal Board (DJB), Khattar said.

In a demi official letter sent to his counterpart as a reply to his last month’s letter, Khattar said: “I am told that complete facts are perhaps not being presented before you. You may like to pose a simple question to your officers as to which of the following three calculations maximise Delhi’s water entailment from Haryana.

“These are: (a) worked out as per share and allocation of Delhi; (b) worked out as per orders of the Supreme Court; and (c) worked out as per orders of the Delhi High Court.” (IANS)
