On Wednesday, BJP leaders rallied at the Delhi police headquarters, pressing for the establishment of a special investigation team (SIT) and the filing of an FIR concerning the alleged theft of water from the Munak Canal by the tanker mafia.

Leading the charge, Delhi BJP president Virendra Sachdeva and North West Delhi MP Yogendra Chandolia presented a formal complaint to Police Commissioner Sanjay Arora. The complaint implored the Delhi police to launch an FIR and form an SIT to identify and act against those behind the water theft.

The plea further urged authorities to dismantle the operations of the tanker mafia, accused of depriving the citizens of their water rights. The city, in the throes of a water crisis exacerbated by unprecedented heat, has seen a bitter blame game unfold between BJP and AAP. With the issue reaching the Supreme Court, a vacation bench criticized the Delhi government for its ineffective handling of the tanker mafia.
