Water Crisis in Haryana

wwwwwwThe Haryana water crisis that occurred in February was a man-made result of the Jat protesters damaging the supply link to the capital.

According to reports, seven water treatment plants were forced shut after angry mobs broke the control apparatus of the Munak canal in Haryana, affecting several parts in west, northwest and south Delhi.

While the government took precautionary steps to save water by shutting down schools and rationing water, a permanent solution is moot as the courts have taken a stand of non-interference.
