New delhi sources stated that delhi bjp chief manoj tiwari on wednesday shot a letter to chief minister arvind kejriwal, claiming that people were "deeply scared" and "terrified of drinking the water supplied in the city which a BIS report has found to be "poisonous". Meanwhile Kejriwal had earlier blamed Central ministers and bjp leaders for scaring people by saying that the water supply in delhi was poisonous. Furthermore Union Consumer Affairs minister ram Vilas Paswan on saturday released the second phase of the Bureau of indian Standardisation (BIS) study which stated that delhi along with kolkata and chennai failed in almost 10 out of 11 quality parameters of drinking water.
Tiwari wrote in the letter "Since the BIS report found that the drinking water being supplied by arvind kejriwal government is poisonous, people of delhi are deeply scared. Uncontrolled panic has set in delhi and people are terrified of drinking the water you are supplying”. Furthermore he claimed that he has received calls and met people who are worried about the safety of their family members, especially children.
Moreover the delhi bjp chief alleged "People from many parts of delhi are coming forward to report that their tap water stinks, sometimes it is difficult to differentiate between the smell of sewage and water that you are supplying as drinking water". Perhaps the quality of water supply in delhi is snowballing into a major issue for the ruling AAP and the opposition bjp and congress as the assembly polls in delhi draws near.
