NEW DELHI: Delhi minister Atishi instructed authorities on Monday to devise strategies for tackling the issue of a drain overflowing in central Delhi during heavy rains.
The drain’s overflow occurred after an unprecedented downpour of 228 mm on June 28, resulting in waterlogging in surrounding localities.
On Monday, Atishi conducted an inspection of the drain, accompanied by high-ranking officials.
“The water of central Delhi goes to Yamuna from drain No 12 near ITO. When Delhi received 228 mm of rainfall on June 28, the drain overflowed and caused waterlogging in the surrounding areas,” the senior AAP leader said in a post in Hindi on X.
“Today, I along with Mayor @OberoiShelly and senior officials, inspected this drain and gave instructions for finding short- and long-term solutions to stop the overflow,” she added.
