New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party MLA-elect Dinesh Mohaniya said the priority of the upcoming government will be to provide piped water to the entire national capital.
Mohaniya was Vice-Chairperson of the Delhi Jal Board in the outgoing Aam Aadmi Party government, while AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal was the chairperson of the agency responsible for supplying potable water to the city.
“The areas where we were not able to provide water will be gived piped water,” Mohaniya told IANS.
He explained that in the last term, the entire city could not get water pipelines as it was not feasible.
“There are several areas where feasibility is not there to spread the water pipeline. Now, we will look for options to connect those areas with pipelines.”
The DJB and the Delhi government will also repair and replace the lines which are old and need repair.
“The condition of the city has changed in the last 30-40 years and so had the demand for water. While the pipelines are old,” he said.
The Sangam Vihar MLA added that his party got votes because they had worked in the last five years. “We were elected again because we worked. Now, in the coming five years, work will remain our priority.”
AAP bagged 62 of the 70 Delhi Assembly seats and Mohaniya was also re-elected.
