Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said there is dissatisfaction among people in Delhi over "unclean" drinking water and this is a worrisome issue.

"You must have seen in Delhi these days there was so much awareness regarding water and also dissatisfaction (over its quality). There is a concern from all over that Delhi is the national capital and drinking water is unclean. This has become a worrisome issue," Modi said.

His remarks, aimed at the AAP government, come ahead of the Assembly polls in the national capital scheduled early next year.

The prime minister was speaking during the launch of the Atal Jal Mission here.

Modi added that in the next five years, the Centre and the states will spend Rs 3.5 lakh crore in the water sector.

Last month, tests conducted by the Bureau of Indian Standards found drinking water in the national capital unsafe, triggering a war of words between Union Consumer Affairs Minister Ram Vilas Paswan and the Delhi government.

The Delhi government rejected the claims of unsafe drinking water made by Paswan.
