On Wednesday, Kirit Somaiya, BJP🔸 Lok Sabha MP alleged that there were irregularities❕ in the supply of water💧 by tankers and demanded an SIT probe🔎 into the issue. The Shiv Sena-ruled🚩 (SS) Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation🏤 (BMC) supplies the water to Mumbai🌃. Somaiya says that the SS🚩 is “shielding” water tanker mafias😈 in the city, who are controlling its water supply. However, SS🚩 Chief, Uddhav Thackeray denies❌ the allegations. Somaiya said💬, “In 100 days, that is from January 1 to April 10 this year, the BMC has sold 38,999 litres of water to private tanker mafias in the city through 18 water filling points. In this period, 13,424 tankers were sanctioned for use by the Municipal Corporation.” Somaiya claims that private tanker owners😈 are purchasing water at 1⃣ paisa per litre from the BMC but selling it at ₹1⃣ per litre. He said that the Mumbai’s water mafia😈 are worsening the situation in the city, causing a shortage of 50 lakh litres of drinking water daily💧.
