Delhi: BJP slams AAP govt on water meters, demands CBI probe

Satish Upadhyay, BJP Delhi unit president, said advertisements of private companies asking people to buy meters from specific firms reeked of corruption.

The BJP’s Delhi unit Monday tore into the AAP government’s pitch for water meters, accusing it of approving the same instruments it had faulted earlier. The BJP also sought a CBI inquiry into the price variance of water meters published by the AAP government.

The same water meter that Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had found faulty and ‘exposed’ in public by blowing air into it is now certified by the AAP government, the BJP alleged. Satish Upadhyay, BJP Delhi unit president, said advertisements of private companies asking people to buy meters from specific firms reeked of corruption.
