The cause of misery of Delhiites has been increased by Haryana government which has refused to provide additional water from Munak canal.

Delhi Jal Board is expected to provide water from at least four ambitious projects, however, construction of all projects are yet to be completed Meanwhile, reports claimed that unavailability of water from Munak canal has rendered the existing treatment plants under-utilised.

The AAP government, which had promised to provide 29 kilolitres of free water to Delhiites, is yet to take any decisions on the crucial matter.

Surprisingly, the crucial projects did not even figure in the 70-point agenda of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)-led Delhi government.

The current daily requirement of water in Delhi is nearly 11 million gallons per day (MGD) but the water treatment plants in Delhi together are not able to produce more than 600 to 700 MGD per day.
