He said that we have also heard that it is also being said by the Lieutenant Governor that the cow dung which used to contaminate this lake from Bhalswa Dairy has now been stopped by the Lieutenant Governor, but it is not true. Quite the contrary. He told that the cow dung coming from Bhalswa Dairy in Bhalswa Lake has been stopped by Delhi Jal Board by putting interceptors.

He told that there is a drain near Bhalswa Lake which used to take the cow dung of Bhalswa Dairy to the supplementary drain, so that the dirt going into Bhalswa Lake could be stopped, it could be made clean.
He told that because the drainage of this drain which was in the supplementary drain was stopped, then this drain started overflowing and once again the cow dung coming out of this drain filled the Bhalswa lake, in reference to which the MLA from Burari Sanjeev Jha and Badli MLA Ajesh Yadav lodged a complaint in the office of Water Minister Saurabh Bhardwaj and requested to organize a meeting in this context.
He told that when the meeting was organized, MLA Sanjeev Jha and MLA Ajay Yadav complained that this drain has been closed by the office of the Lieutenant Governor by pressurizing the officials, due to which the entire Bhalswa Dairy has been destroyed. Cow dung was filled in Bhalswa lake. Verifying his point, he once again told that the minutes of the meeting are still present in the records of the Delhi Jal Board.
Is the Lieutenant Governor taking the credit of the Delhi government?
Minister Saurabh Bhardwaj said that with great sadness I have to say that the Delhi Jal Board and the Delhi government have worked hard day and night. Today the Deputy Governor is trying to take credit for the Bhalswa lake which was revived.

He said that such acts are being done continuously by the Lieutenant Governor for a long time. We were calm considering the dignity of his position. But now the Lieutenant Governor has crossed all the limits, so under compulsion we have to come in front of the public and tell this thing.
