Delhi water crisis

On the other hand the national capital, Delhi, continues to battle severe water crisis amid rising temperatures due to heatwave condition. The AAP government in Delhi approached the Supreme Court on Friday seeking immediate additional water from neighbouring Haryana. The apex court will hear the plea on June 3.

In its plea, the Delhi government alleged that it is constrained to file the petition on account of the acute water shortage being faced by the people of Delhi, triggered by the ongoing severe heat conditions in North India, particularly in the national capital. Several areas in Delhi, including Chanakyapuri's Sanjay Camp, Okhla Phase 2, and the Geeta colony, are severely affected by theacute water shortage.
