New Delhi, July 10 (IANS) Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday urged Delhiites to conserve water and go for water recycling technology.
Kejriwal made the appeal after inaugurating two electric sub-stations set up by New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) at Ali Ganj-Jor Bagh and Sarojini Nagar areas.
He emphasized the need for water conservation in the city, saying this was needed because Delhi was dependent for water on neighbouring states like Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, a NDMC statement said.
Kejriwal appealed to people to adopt water recycling technology and conserve water. He cited the example President Pranab Mukherjee, who he said had introduced this technology in Rashtrapati Bhavan.
The chief minister praised the NDMC for providing better civic facilities compared to other civic agencies.
NDMC chairman Naresh Kumar said the 33 KV electric sub-station at the junction of Aliganj and Jor Bagh cost Rs.5.5 crores and was completed in two years.
