On 28th June, three workers who were cleaning the drain 30 feet below ground level for Delhi Jal Board (DJB) in Delhi's Khyala area were drowned when the Jal Board opened the water supply. Rescue teams were called in but one worker died, while the other two are in critical condition. DJB had given the contract to clean the drainages to a private company. It is nothing short of criminal negligence by the authorities that they flooded the drain when workers were cleaning it.
“Maharashtra will be drought-free by 2019.” So announced the newly-elected BJP-led government in Maharashtra four years ago on 9th March 2015.

The reality of severe drought in 2019 in the state shows that it was yet another declaration to fool people, to cool down their anger.
University, school students and working class youth are out in the streets of the national capital asking for justice from a political system and its ruling class that has secured its own selfish interest at the expense of the vast majority.
