Not Designated To Take Such Unprecedented Rain: Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal On Waterlogging In National Capital

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday rejected claims of waterlogging situation in the national capital due to failure of drainage system caused by two days straight torrential rains.

The Delhi Chief minister admitted that the union territory is ‘not designated to take such unprecedented rain’ due to which major roads were submerged, traffic disrupted and homes and businesses affected.  

Rubbishing the speculations of flood in the national capital, Delhi CM said that such situation is unlikely.

“As per CWC, Yamuna river is flowing at 203.58 metres in Delhi. It is expected to reach 205.5 metres tomorrow morning. As per weather predictions, the water level in Yamuna is not expected to rise too high,” he added.

The Chief Minister also underlined that if the Yamuna crosses the 206 metre mark, the evacuation along the banks of river will start,” he noted.

Meanwhile, the Central Water Commission said the water level in River Yamuna in Delhi is rising and is likely to surpass the danger mark of 205.33 metres on Tuesday.
