CHANDIGARH: The Haryana Government has taken up a project under the Economic Stimulus Package to provide 100 per cent coverage of water supply and sewerage facilities in 14 towns, an official spokesman said here on Monday.

Several districts in Haryana were on high alert as heavy rain continued and the Yamuna rose further. As the Army struggled to plug the 40-foot breach in the SYL canal at village Jogan Khera near Jyotisar in Kurukshetra district, a fresh breach erupted at Darsi village. Over 40 villages in the district are now under water, the new breach at Darsi having flooded a dozen today.
