(MENAFN- IANS) New Delhi, Dec 5 (IANS) Responding to complaints, Delhi Water Minister Atishi on Tuesday conducted a surprise inspection in Sultanpur Majra and Trilokpuri areas during which she expressed dissatisfaction on overflowing sewer water on the streets.

The Minister reprimanded officials for not taking action despite continuous complaints from the residents.

During the surprise inspection, Atishi saw sewage water overflowing outside sewers in many lanes, causing distress to residents and damaging the lanes.

She interacted with the affected public, who expressed their frustration with the lack of effective action by Delhi Jal Board (DJB) officials despite repeated complaints.

In response to the situation, Atishi issued a 15-day ultimatum to officials, instructing them to resolve all sewer-related issues in the specified areas within the given timeframe.

She stressed on the need for a detailed plan to address the sewer problems in Trilokpuri Pocket-E.
