AAP effect: Free water tankers, clean roads
Dilip Kumar a resident of Sangam Vihar’s Block-16 was surprised at the sight of a government water tanker near his colony for the first time on Sunday morning. Only a day after the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government took oath, the Asia’s largest unauthorised colony facing acute water shortage for decades finally received free water.
In other parts of the capital like Mehrauli, Gokalpur and Seelampur also, the government water tankers were seen doing the rounds.
In Sanjay Colony-an unauthorized colony in Gokalpur-the drains were cleaned early in the morning which is a rare sight in the colony. In fact many people said that apart from the main road the lanes have to be swept by the residents themselves but on Sunday government trucks came in to scoop away the garbage and the lanes were sparkling.
