Delhi CM issues first work order from ED custody, instructs to solve water-related problems

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has issued his first direction from the Enforcement Directorate custody, instructing Water Minister Atishi to solve water- and sewer-related problems in some areas of the city.

Atishi said the directions, received late on Saturday, brought tears to her eyes with Kejriwal showing concern for the people of Delhi despite his own plight.

The CM directed for deploying enough water tankers in areas where there is scarcity to strengthen supply ahead of the approaching summer months, Atishi said.

The minister said Kejriwal directed to issue instructions to the chief secretary and other officers in this regard.

He also suggested seeking the help of Lt Governor VK Saxena, if needed, and expects that he will extend all assistance, she said.

Day after being sent into the custody of the ED till March 28, Kejriwal Saturday moved the High Court seeking an urgent hearing on his arrest. Kejriwal has termed his arrest as “illegal” as he challenged the ED’s move. As per sources, the matter is unlikely to be heard before March 27, when the High Court will reopen after Holi vacation.

Meanwhile, the AAP has decided to take out a candle march and burn the effigy of the BJP government in the national capital on Sunday against the arrest of party chief.
