NEW DELHI: Delhi water minister Atishi announced on Sunday that she has requested an emergency meeting with Lt Governor V K Saxena. This is in response to the ‘inadequate’ water supply being released by Haryana through the Munak Canal, a crucial source of potable water for Delhi.
In a post on X, the minister said Delhi is supposed to receive 1,050 cusecs of water from the canal but it has reduced to only 840 cusecs.

“Have sought time from the Hon’ble @LtGovDelhi for an emergency meeting, to apprise him of the inadequate water being released by Haryana from the Munak Canal.”
“Delhi is supposed to receive 1050 cusecs of water from the Munak Canal via the CLC and DSB sub-canals. However, this has reduced to 840 cusecs. 7 Water Treatment Plants are dependent on this water. If the amount of water does not increase today, then the water situation across Delhi will worsen in 1-2 days,” she stated in the post.
Amid the rising temperatures, Delhi has been dealing with a water shortage.
“Hon’ble @LtGovDelhi is the representative of the Central Govt. Will be requesting him to intervene and resolve the situation,” she said.
