New Delhi
Describing himself as a sure word of mouth, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that the dirt will be removed from the Yamuna river before the next elections. He said that before the 2025 elections, Yamuna will become so clean that no person will hesitate to take a dip in it. The Chief Minister announced a six-point action plan to make Yamuna pollution free. He talked about this in detail in an address. Later, by tweeting, he assured that the Yamuna would be cleared by any means before the elections.

CM Kejriwal will himself take a dip in Yamuna

Kejriwal said that his government has prepared a six-point action plan to make Yamuna up to bathable standard by February 2025. He said that new sewage treatment plants are being built and the old one will be technologically upgraded. “This will increase our sewage treatment capacity from about 600 million gallons per day (MGD) of wastewater to 750 MGD- 800 MGD,” he said. He said that the water of the four major drains, Najafgarh, Badshahpur, Supplementary and Ghazipur, which come into the Yamuna, are being treated at their original place. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader said the government would shut down the industries discharging industrial waste into the Yamuna.

Information given about the six-point program

The Chief Minister said that the dirty water coming from the ‘Jhuggi-Jhopri’ would be connected to the sewer network, whose water now goes into the Yamuna. The government will provide domestic ‘connections’ in areas that have sewer networks. Earlier, the consumers had to get the ‘connection’ themselves. “Our engineers and officials are hopeful that we will be able to clean Yamuna by February 2025 by implementing a six-point action plan,” Kejriwal said. Specific targets have been fixed for each action formula, I will personally monitor the progress.

It has taken 70 years in the condition the Yamuna has reached. It cannot be fixed in two days, but we will definitely fulfill the promise we made in the elections. We will take a dip in Yamuna before the next election.

Delhi government under pressure on pollution
The pressure on the Delhi government regarding pollution is increasing continuously. Before Chhath Puja, the news of poisonous foam floating in the Yamuna river made a lot of headlines, then the attacks of opponents on the Delhi government increased. Through social media, people reminded the Kejriwal government of its election promise. Opposition BJP accused the Delhi government of spending more on image polishing than working on pollution. The Supreme Court also reprimanded with some similar mood. He also said that the pollution situation in Delhi is very worrying. Amidst these all-round pressures, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal came forward and clarified the intention of the government.
