Delhi Jal Board Funding Crisis: AAP Alleges Bureaucratic Obstacles, Seeks Action

Water minister Saurabh Bharadwaj stated on Wednesday that many major Delhi Jal Board (DJB) projects were stalled because finance department bureaucrats were preventing the delivery of vital funds to DJB.

Several Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs urged action against finance department staff who were reportedly not releasing funds “by putting several unnecessary objections on the files” during the assembly debate on the DJB’s funding crisis.

The subject was referred to the assembly’s petitions committee by Deputy Speaker Rakhi Birla, who directed the committee to provide its report within a month.

Bharadwaj said that the officers were “pressured from above” to file objections. “The officers continue to move the files back and forth with objections.” This is occurring because the Delhi administration lacks control over officials. “The officers have been put under pressure from on high,” Bharadwaj added.

Ramvir Singh Bidhuri, the leader of the opposition, slammed the AAP, claiming corruption in the Delhi government. “DJB is running a 72,000 crore deficit after making a 500 crore profit in 2013-14… the loss should be investigated by the CBI,” Bidhuri added.
