Amid the ongoing water crisis across the city, the Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Aaditya Thackeray on Sunday, June 16, accused the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) of giving false information about water cuts in Mumbai.

Moreover, the city is facing 40 per cent water cut, however, the civic officials have remained silent on this issue.

Aaditya Thackeray, who is Worli MLA said that normally, during April and May, the city faces 5-10 per cent water cut but this time it was not implemented due to the Lok Sabha polls. However, water cut is now in place but people have not been informed properly about it, claimed Aaditya Thackeray.

Thackeray further said that the BMC commissioner-cum-administrator Bhushan Gagrani must share factual data.

This development came at a time when the water level in the seven lakes that supply water to Mumbai dipped to an all-time low on Saturday, June 15, at 5.45 per cent, BMC data stated. 

However, BMC officials asserted that no additional water cut is to be implemented in the city any time soon. It is pertinent to note that the civic body had announced 10 per cent water cut from June until further notice.

Last year on June 15, water level in the lakes stood at 8.9%, while in 2022, the water level stood at 12.24%.
