A raging Yamuna river caused damage to a regulator, resulting in water reaching the Supreme Court and submerging the ITO intersection and Rajghat memorial. The water levels receded slightly, but floodwaters still reached central Delhi. The damaged regulator near the Indraprastha bus stand and WHO Building is being repaired.
Delhi Cabinet minister Saurabh Bharadwaj blamed the delay in deploying the NDRF for the regulator damage, while Lieutenant Governor Vinai Kumar Saxena urged against playing the blame game. Despite the water level in Yamuna decreasing, parts of Delhi remain flooded.
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal visited the site and stated that the breached regulator would be repaired within a few hours. The strong flow of water from the river entered the city through the damaged regulator at ITO and nearby areas. Efforts are being made to stop the water with the help of laborers, engineers, the Army, and the NDRF.
Aam Aadmi Party leader Sanjay Singh criticized the BJP government in Haryana for releasing water from the Hathnikund barrage, which led to the flood-like situation in parts of Delhi. The BJP responded by accusing the AAP government of evading responsibility.
