On Kejriwal’s announcement, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia elaborated that the government was working on rejuvenation and beautification of a total of 50 lakes in the capital.

Sisodia also reviewed the work under progress at Sannoth Lake in Bawana in northwest Delhi.

“In order to make Arvind Kejriwal’s Delhi a city of lakes, I took stock of the work being done to restore and beautify Sannoth Lake. With lakhs of litres of treated water daily, the dried up Sannoth Lake is being transformed into one of the most beautiful picnic spots of Delhi”, Sisodia said in a tweet in Hindi.

 

 

He added that this project would also bring a relief to Delhi’s water shortage issue.

“Fifty such lakes that have lost their identity are being restored and this will enable recharge of groundwater and also address the problem of water shortage. Once this project is completed, Delhiites will be able to come here with their families and marvel at the beauty”, Sisodia tweeted.

Quote-tweeting Sisodia’s tweet, Kejriwal said, “After becoming ‘city of tirangas’, Delhi is set to become city of lakes’. Soon, we will have so many beautiful lakes across Delhi.”

Kejriwal envisages these lakes as refreshing spots for local people and tourist spots for outsiders.
