Delhi Govt. suspends three Jal Board officials, shifts 800 others

New Delhi, Jan.7 : The Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Government in Delhi has suspended three Delhi Jal Board (DJB) officials and ordered the transfer of around 800 others in a bid to streamline its service delivery mechanism.

Chief Minister Kejriwal suspended the three oficers on charges of seeking bribes to clear the use of water for construction and meter reading.

Delhi's Urban Development and Public Works Department (PWD) Minister Manish Sisodia said cases will be filed against the three officials.

The state government has also ordered the transfer of around 800 officials as part of the streamlining exercise.

The AAP was voted to power on December 8 on promises that included providing about 700 litres of free water per household and a halving of power tariffs.
