Children, adults ‘enjoy’ on flooded streets despite CM Arvind Kejriwal’s warning

Battling one of the most devastating floods in decades, parts of Delhi remain severely waterlogged. Several areas of the city have submerged as the water level of River Yamuna rose significantly. Incessant rain and the release of water from Hathnikund Barrage led Yamuna to flow above the danger mark. While the flood situation has shattered lives, some took it as an opportunity to enjoy the weather. Several children and adults were seen splashing in the polluted floodwater at the Ring Road area. Notably, three teenagers drowned in a ditch, filled with water amid severe waterlogging in the Mukundpur area on July 14. Taking the incident seriously, CM Arvind Kejriwal took to Twitter and urged people to avoid such a situation. Earlier in the day, CM Kejriwal also held a meeting over the prevailing situation in the city. Following the meeting, Health Minister Saurabh Bharadwaj said that various ministers have been allotted different areas to review arrangements. Though the situation remains grim in several parts, the water level came down faster than the expectations of the CWC. NDRF, SDRF along with other departments of security forces are carrying out rescue operations across the city. Notably, the IMD on July 14, predicted light to moderate rainfall accompanied by thunderstorms over the next 4-5 days.
