Ur­ban de­vel­op­ment min­is­ter Suresh Khanna gave a diplo­matic re­ply. “I do not say that there was any lapse on the part of the ir­ri­ga­tion depart­ment. All that I can say is we are fully aware of the cri­sis and are tak­ing all pos­si­ble steps to deal with it,” he said.

Though the ir­ri­ga­tion depart­ment has claimed to have re­leased wa­ter into the canal, the res­i­dents may still have to wait for a day or two to have ac­cess to nor­mal wa­ter sup­ply. “Gen­er­ally, it takes 36-48 hours for sup­ply to be nor­mal af­ter wa­ter is re­leased into the lake,” Verma said.
