Amid protests over the national capital's severe water shortage, Delhi Minister Saurabh Bharadwaj on Sunday accused BJP leaders and workers of vandalising a Delhi Jal Board office.

Earlier in the day, BJP leaders led a protest against the AAP government in different areas across Delhi over the water shortage.

"The first part of the conspiracy was reducing Delhi's water through its government in Haryana. Today (Sunday), the Wazirabad barrage is lying empty while the Munak canal is receiving less water," the senior AAP leader alleged.

"Many parts of south Delhi did not receive water this morning because the main pipeline was intentionally broken yesterday (Saturday). Step two, breaking water pipelines and disrupting supply. Step three, which was revealed today, was the BJP sending goons to the Delhi Jal Board office to create ruckus," she said.

There was no immediate reaction available from the BJP.

Atishi said Delhi Jal Board officials will file a police complaint in connection with the vandalism incident.

"Will the Delhi Police register an FIR? Will the Delhi Lt Governor take action?" she asked.

Atishi has also written to Delhi Police Commissioner Sanjay Arora, requesting deployment of personnel for patrolling and protecting major pipelines for the next 15 days.
