New Delhi, Aug 31: While the citizens of Delhi and Gurugram braced themselves from the heavy rainfall that caused massive traffic jams and water-logging in the two cities, US Secretary of State John Kerry tried to humour the students at IIT-Delhi on Wednesday.
Kerry, whose visit to three religious sites in the capital were cancelled following the heavy downpour, arrived at IIT-Delhi and asked the students: "Have you (students) come here in boats?". Kerry's event was delayed due to the water-logging that was reported from several parts of the city.
Kerry was scheduled to visit the Gauri Shankar temple, the Gurdwara Sisganj Sahib and the Jama Masjid in the old Delhi area around 11 am on Wednesday. He was scheduled to visit these places on Tuesday but the visit was postponed to Wednesday.
Kerry, who arrived on Monday night, got a taste of the Delhi traffic after his convoy was struck in Lutyens Delhi for an hour.
