In an escalating dispute, Delhi's Water Minister Atishi has accused Haryana of failing to release the agreed 1,050 cusecs of water through the Munak canal, exacerbating a severe water crisis in the national capital.

Addressing a press conference, Atishi highlighted the dwindling water supply, which fell to 840 cusecs on June 7, far below Delhi's needs. She warned that if Haryana does not comply, the water shortage will become critical.

The shortage has led to desperate actions from Delhi residents and an intervention by the Supreme Court, which instructed the Himachal Pradesh government to assist. However, political blame games and legal disputes continue to overshadow effective solutions.
