There is a mixed feeling going on in India in India currently. While at one side, India successfully launched Chandrayaan 3 into orbit & PM Modi visited France as a guest of honour at France's Bastille Day parade, it' national capital New Delhi is submerging into the water due to the rise of the water level in Yamuna. Due to continuous rain in parts of Northern India including Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand and a part of Punjab, the flow of Yamuna river breached the danger mark and entered the city. Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday had flagged a warning suggesting that the National Capital will witness a flood and if no swift action is taken, people might be displaced or in the worst case scenario lose their life and livelihood.

Why Yamuna water-level is rising in Delhi?

Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday wrote to Union Home Minister Amit Shah informing that the reason behind the water level rising in Yamuna is because a high volume of water is being released from Haryana's Hathnikund barrage. As per reports, the Hathnikund Barrage's peak inflow on Tuesday morning was 3.59 lakh cusecs and lasted for two hours. At 3 pm on Wednesday, the inflow had gradually diminished to 1.30 lakh cusecs. Now that the river has started overflowing, problems for the city's inhabitants are imminent. As a result, people moved to safer areas when water invaded the Monastery market at Kashmere Gate and Ring Road. The authorities placed sandbags to stop the water from flowing farther after the swelling Yamuna river entered Ring Road.
