Congress holds 'Matka Phod' protest

New Delhi: Congress workers on Saturday held a 'Matka Phod' (break pitchers) protest in Delhi's Krishna Nagar area against the AAP-led Delhi government and the BJP-led government at the Centre to highlight the water crisis in the national capital.

A Congress worker told ANI, "The public is being cheated in the name of water. Poor people are suffering the most. The governments are playing the blame game. Why was water not arranged in advance? They were busy doing politics. The Congress party will hold a 'matka phod' protest in Delhi to wake up the deaf and dumb government. They have connived with tanker mafia."

He added,"The Congress has resolved that 'matka' will be broken in every corner of Delhi and the sleeping government will be awakened."

Another worker said that the AAP and BJP should not indulge in politics of allegations and counter-allegations.

"If attention was paid only to leakage, then this situation would not have happened today. Their politics is depriving the poor of water as well. This is a very sad thing," he said.
