The capital Delhi, which is facing water crisis, now has to find a new option to quench its thirst. Because Himachal has now taken a U-turn with 137 cusecs of additional water. The Himachal side has replied that they do not have much water. In such a situation, the Delhi government was hoping on Himachal that they would get additional water. Regarding this, the Delhi government sent officials of the Upper River Jal Board to Yamunanagar and they camped at Hathnikund barrage for three days.

Their hopes were dashed when Himachal too refused to provide additional water. Let us tell you that the Supreme Court had to intervene regarding the Delhi water crisis, after which the Himachal government filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court and said that we will provide 137 cusecs of water to Delhi. Yamunanagar Irrigation Department Superintending Engineer RS ​​Mittal said that the latest information we have is that Himachal has refused to provide water.

Water is going to UP and Haryana

RS Mittal further said that Himachal government has given water scarcity as the reason for not providing water. He also informed that 2497 cusecs of water has been recorded at Hathnikund Barrage. This water is being sent to UP and Haryana and some water has also been diverted to Delhi. The Aam Aadmi Party has accused the Bharatiya Janata Party of doing dirty politics regarding this matter.

Party spokesperson Priyanka Kakkar claimed that 137 cusecs of water released by Himachal Pradesh after the Supreme Court order has not yet reached Delhi.
