Delhi is in trouble, water reached the Supreme Court, boat on the road, know what is the latest situation


Water orgy continues in Delhi. The condition of the country’s capital has become pathetic.

He wrote on his Twitter wall that whole night our team worked to repair the regulator of drain number 12 near WHO building. Still the water of Yamuna is entering the city through this. The government has instructed the chief secretary to work on it on top priority.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that the water regulator (speed regulator) at Indraprastha has been damaged due to the rapid flow of Yamuna river. It is likely to be repaired in three-four hours.
