The Delhi police used water cannons to disperse workers of the Bharatiya Janata party (BJP), who were protesting over the national capital’s water crisis on July 12.
The demonstration was organised by the local BJP unit against the Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government over the water supply shortage which has affected several parts of the city.
The protestors also threatened to cut off the water supply to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal residence if the issue is not resolved within the next two days.
The protest came a day after Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) workers allegedly damaged the water connection to Delhi BJP Chief Adesh Gupta’s residence in Patel Nagar during a protest against the Haryana government for allegedly not providing the capital its share of water.
“People in Delhi are craving for each drop of water. The ministers of the Kejriwal government will realise the problems being faced by the people when their water supply is cut off,” Adesh Gupta said while addressing the protestors.
Later, the protestors reached the residence of Jal Board chairman (DJB) Satyendra Jain, who lives in the same area, and tried to cut the water connection.
The police used water cannons and detained the man during protest.
