New Delhi: The water of Yamuna river in the national capital has become completely poisonous due to the chemicals released from dirty drains and factories. Keeping in view the convenience of the devotees on Chhath festival, the employees of Delhi Jal Board are now sprinkling water on the Yamuna river to get rid of the toxic foam. People on social media are trolling the Kejriwal government for this. In this case, Delhi Jal Board employee Ashok Kumar told the media that he would sprinkle water on the banks of Yamuna river to get rid of the foam by evening. This is part of a plan to eliminate toxic froth for Chhath Puja, where devotees take a dip in the river while praying to the sun.
“It rains on the lake in our country,
The condition of life is bad in our country,
Milk is expensive, blood is cheap in our country,
Now except viziers, officers or lunatics
And who laughs openly in our country..!” https://t.co/UObQCtdgM3

However, netizens are unable to understand how the river will be cleaned after sprinkling water. At the same time, it is also troubling people as to why the Arvind Kejriwal-led state government sanctioned Rs 2,000 crore for cleaning the river when the toxic foam could have been dealt with so easily. Users on social media are trying to find out how spraying toxic foam will reduce the toxicity of Yamuna water.

A user named Gajendra wrote, ‘If water is sprinkled in Yamuna in this way in non-monsoon months, then the water level of the river can rise and perhaps the water crisis in the national capital can also be solved. Shame on you for such a good idea. Actually, everyone is surprised by the idea of Kejriwal government to get rid of the toxicity of Yamuna water. On the other hand, Kejriwal’s former aide Dr Kumar Vishwas himself has also tweeted about the issue on which he has also shared the video.
