The meeting was organised under the special ongoing campaign “Meet with MLA” launched by the DJB Vice Chairman under the guidance of Chief Minister Shri Arvind Kejriwal. Shri Somnath Bharti said that the objective of the novel campaign is to identify public complaints related to water and sewerage at the assembly constituency level and to redress them immediately. Under this campaign, meetings are being held with MLAs of different assembly constituencies and complaints related to water-sewer of the areas are being resolved on war footing. In the meeting held with MLAs Shri Shiv Charan Goel and Shri Rohit Mehraulia, the DJB Vice Chairman discussed problems concerning water and sewerage in the assembly constituencies of Moti Nagar and Trilokpuri. The senior officials of Jal Board were also present in the meeting and Shri Somnath Bharti directed the officials to take necessary steps to resolve all public complaints on priority basis.
Shri Somnath Bharti said that the top most priority of the authorities should be to eliminate the problem of contaminated water supply in Delhi. He said that the objective is to bring down the number of complaints related to contaminated water supply in Delhi to zero. Shri Somnath Bharti said that the Delhi Jal Board will now employ a special type of “Identification Kit” in dealing with water contamination issues. With the help of this kit, the Delhi Jal Board officials will be able to easily trace the source of contamination of supply water in an area quickly. This will help the officials to reach the spot instantly and fix the problem to ensure that clean drinking water supply is restored. Along with tracking the problem or complaint through the identification kit, real-time monitoring of the status of the problem or complaints can also be done with the help of Google Map and other similar software. The identification kit will soon be provided to all junior engineers of Delhi Jal Board and the procurement process for more than 200 identification kits will start soon. Shri Somnath Bharti said that under the guidance of Chief Minister Shri Arvind Kejriwal, the Delhi Jal Board is striving to make its services more effective and people friendly by employing modern and novel technologies. Giving strict instructions to the DJB officials, Shri Somnath Bharti said that no red-tapism should be allowed to delay public works. The Vice Chairman of Delhi Jal Board said that all necessary steps should be taken to solve problems related to water and sewerage in Moti Nagar assembly constituency.
The Delhi Jal Board Vice Chairman also had discussions with Trilokpuri Assembly Constituency MLA Shri Rohit Mehraulia on problems related to water and sewerage in his area. Shri Somnath Bharti said that the Delhi Jal Board is installing several tubewells near Noida Mor that will help improve the water supply in Trilokpuri area especially New Ashok Nagar. The installation work of tubewells has been completed. During the meeting, the DJB Vice Chairman was informed that there is unnecessary delay in commissioning of the tubewells as the power company has not provided electricity connections for the tube wells. Shri Somnath Bharti instantly directed the DJB officials to resolve the matter as soon as possible after holding talks with the officials of the power company. They were also instructed to make alternate arrangements in terms of electricity connections so that the tubewells could be commissioned at the earliest. Shri Somnath Bharti said that the water extracted through tubewells installed in the area will be cleaned and supplied to the areas that have less water supplies. This will be done through the underground reservoir (UGR) of Trilokpuri. Moreover, the DJB officials were also instructed to prepare an action plan for the laying of new water lines in the New Ashok Nagar area to improve water supply there.
