The water crisis in the city is likely to continue as Delhi government’s efforts to get more water from neighbouring Haryana did not fructify.

At a meeting here, Delhi chief secretary P.K. Tripathi asked his Haryana counterpart P.K. Chaudhery to release more water to Delhi but the latter turned down the request saying his state was also facing shortage. Mr Tripathi later said that both sides agreed to improve coordination in matters relating to withdrawal of water by Delhi from Yamuna barrage for Wazirabad and Hedayatpur water treatment plants.
