INDIA Team Latestly|

Delhi Jal Board Vice -Chairman Raghav Chadha on July 12 said the water levels of the Yamuna river at the Wazirabad barrage have hit the lowest point in 56 years as Haryana has withheld Delhi’s legitimate share of water. Chadha, who reviewed the situation at the Wazirabad pond, said Haryana has not been releasing at least 120 MGD (million gallons per day) water that belongs to Delhi. Even if the water level in the Yamuna goes down by a foot, it causes havoc in the capital, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader said. Chadha also informed that water level in the Yamuna has gone down by 7.5 feet as Haryana has withheld Delhi’s share of water. Chadha said there has been sufficient rainfall in Haryana and the water levels in the state’s rivers are higher than what they need. Meanwhile, on July 12, police used water cannons to disperse Delhi BJP leaders and workers as they tried to cut the water connection to Delhi Jal Board chairman (DJB) Satyendar Jain's house to protest the alleged poor water supply in the city.
