Delhi Water Crisis on Friday intensified with AAP Minister Atishi Marlena reaching out to neighbouring states- Uttar Pradesh and Haryana to help the people of the National Capital. Amid the scorching heat, the Delhi Water Crisis has turned out to be the biggest talking point on social media. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has knocked on the doors of the Supreme Court seeking urgent intervention in the matter. As per reports, due to the record-breaking heat in Delhi, the water demand has skyrocketed in the National Capital.

However, the Arvind Kejriwal government is not able to fulfill the water demands. Recently, a video went viral on social media in which many people started running on the road as soon as Delhi Jal Board's water tanker arrived in the area. 

Delhi water tanker viral video showcase how serious the situation has become in the National Capital. As a result, Delhi Water Minister Atishi wrote to Union Minister Gajendra Shekhawat on the issue of water problem in Delhi. Atishi in her letter wrote, "I am writing to request you to ensure that some provision of water is made for Delhi, be it from Haryana or UP or any other state that may be able to spare water, so that the people of Delhi don't suffer. We request your urgent intervention in the issue...It is imperative that the State of Haryana must immediately release Delhi's rightful share of water into the Yamuna River to bring the waters to the normal level of 674.5 feet."

Atishi in her letter to the Union Minister informed, "Today on a visit to Wazirabad Barrage, I found that the water level at the pond was 670.3 feet as against the normal of 674.50 feet. This reduction in water level has a serious impact on the water production capacity of the water treatment plants in Delhi. If adequate water is not released by Haryana then our plants would not be able to function optimally. And, If the water treatment plants do not function optimally, then Delhi will not be able to meet its demand supply gap. This will have a serious and direct implication on the people living in the national capital. I have already written to Hon'ble Haryana Chief Minister Shri Nayab Singh Saini ji to appraise him of the issue. However, we are yet to receive a response from his office.

The Government of NCT of Delhi is making all possible efforts to encourage people to use water wisely. A multi-departmental approach is being undertaken to ensure that there is no water wastage. We have formed on ground teams to take immediate action against those who are found to waste water. However, these standalone steps will not be sufficient to curtail water scarcity in the national capital."
