Delhi Congress President Devendra Yadav said that there is no area in Delhi where there is no waterlogging today, be it railway station, airport, park or residential areas. For the first time, Delhi came to a standstill.

The Congress on Friday targeted its ally Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) over waterlogging in the national capital due to heavy rains. Delhi Congress President Devendra Yadav said that there is no area in Delhi where waterlogging has not happened today, be it railway station, airport, park or residential areas. For the first time, Delhi has come to a standstill. We have been regularly writing letters and alerting the government about the monsoon, but in times of crisis, the Delhi government runs away, as was seen today.

The Congress has been continuously attacking the AAP over the waterlogging problem in Delhi. The party’s Delhi unit posted a video purportedly of Chandni Chowk’s Sis Ganj Sahib Gurudwara and captioned, “The whole of Delhi is in a bad shape, even Chandni Chowk’s Gurudwara Sis Ganj Sahib is flooded… When will Delhi open up?” “Will the government and municipal corporation wake up?” Several videos and photos have surfaced on social media showing waterlogging in several parts of the city. While some vehicles were seen submerged in water, other vehicles were seen lying in potholes as roads caved in in some areas due to heavy rains.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday demanded the resignation of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government after heavy rains in the national capital led to waterlogging and chaos on roads. Congress, AAP’s ally in the ‘India’ alliance, also accused the government of failure in Delhi. Senior AAP leader and Water Minister Atishi said that Delhi received 228 mm rainfall in the last 24 hours, which is the highest in June since 1936. “This means that 25 percent of the total monsoon rain (800 mm) in Delhi has fallen in just 24 hours. Due to this, drains overflowed in many areas and it took time for the water to drain out,” she said in a press conference.
