When will the ads come?: Gautam Gambhir targets Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal
New Delhi : BJP leader Gautam Gambhir took a jibe at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal after roads in the low lying areas of the national capital were water logged due to heavy rains on the Sunday morning.
Sharing the pictures of waterlogged roads, troubled people and crawling traffic, Mr Gambhir said: "I've heard the Delhi government is planning a 'rain water harvesting' programme for public roads, like London and Paris".
"When will the advertisements for these come, Chief Ministerji?" the East Delhi MP added.
An hour later, Arvind Kejriwal responded by saying that he urges all politicians to come together and fulfill our responsibilities. He also mentioned that the authorities had extra pressure this time due to the coronavirus pandemic.
"This year, all agencies - Delhi government and Municipal Corporation - are engaged in fighting coronavirus. They have faced many difficulties as a result. This is not the time to blame each other. We must come together and fulfil our responsibilities," the Chief Minister tweeted.
He assured the residents of the national capital that his government will soon be clearing the water logged roads.
"Waterlogging has been removed from Minto Bridge. I have been in contact with agencies and am monitoring (the situation). Wherever water is collected, it is being pumped immediately," he said.
