She ordered that the Chief Secretary will monitor to ensure adequate number of water tankers are made available for all parts of Delhi as per requirement in the summer months.
Delhiites are witness to a battle between Chief Minister Arwind Kejriwal and the LG. This fight has reached a crescendo and this strong order indicates a new low in the ongoing tussle for power. Political observers said that the CS has so far made the going tough for the CM.
