‘Can parcel issues from Mumbai to Bihar’: Shiv Sena mocks BJP ahead of polls

Sena leader leader Sanjay Raut said if Bihar doesn't have enough issues, Mumbai can parcel some. The Sena leader's jibe comes a day after the Election Commission announced the schedule of Bihar polls. Bihar is slated to go to polls in three phases on October 28, November 3 and 7. "Bihar polls should be fought on issues of development, law and order and good governance. But if these issues have exhausted, issues from Mumbai can be sent as parcel," Raut said. Earlier, the Rajya Sabha MP had alleged that Sushant Singh Rajput's death was being used as a poll issue in Bihar. On Friday, the MP also hinted that Shiv Sena may contest in Bihar Assembly polls. State police departments of Bihar and Maharashtra locked horns over probe into the actor's death. Former Bihar DGP Gupteshwar Pandey had accused Maharashtra Police of not co-operating. Raut has recently criticised questioning of several Bollywood celebrities by NCB in a drug case related to Sushant Singh's death.

'24x7 water': Delhi CM's promise to capital residents, blames delay on Covid

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal made a substantial promise to the residents of the capital. He vowed to ensure 24x7 clean running water in all houses in the next 5 years. Kejriwal said that the process for the same had started with the Delhi Jal Board initiating the hiring of a consultant to advise the authorities on how to go about implementing their plan. The CM said that the process would have begun in March or April 2020 but was derailed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. He also said that Delhi is in talks with governments of various states like Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand to increase water supply to the capital. Water woes plague many areas of the capital with residents depending on water tankers for their basic needs. Delhi Jal Board reportedly hired over 1,000 tankers to deal with peak summer demand this year. Watch the full video for more.
