The Supreme Court on Wednesday lambasted the Delhi government for its inability to curb the tanker mafia and rampant water wastage, demanding an explanation of measures taken against these issues.

A vacation bench comprising Justices Prashant Kumar Mishra and Prasanna B Varale reprimanded the Delhi administration, stating it may consider directing Delhi Police to intervene if the government remains ineffective in addressing the problem.

”Why were misleading statements presented before this court? With water being supplied from Himachal Pradesh, the extensive spillage and tanker mafia activities in Delhi are unacceptable. What steps have you implemented to combat this?’, the bench questioned.

‘People are suffering, as evident from visual reports on various news channels. What proactive measures have you adopted to minimize water wastage, especially given the recurring summer water shortages?”

Advocate Shadan Farasat, representing the Delhi government, assured that stringent actions, including massive water supply disconnections, are underway to counteract excessive wastage.

The Supreme Court directed the Delhi government to submit a detailed report on actions taken regarding water loss, with the case scheduled for further hearing on Thursday.

The court is reviewing a plea from the Delhi government requesting an order for Haryana to release surplus water provided by Himachal Pradesh to aid the capital’s water crisis.
