As Yamuna water levels continued to dip, Delhi Water Minister Satyendar Jain said the river had dried up as the Haryana government was withholding water. However, Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar said that Delhi is being given 1,050 cusecs of water as per its share.

Around 70% of Delhi’s water supply comes from the Yamuna and canals emerging from it.
