Come summer and the squabbling for water between Delhi and Haryana begins. Haryana was pulled up by the Supreme Court of India on February 24, for its failure to stop the leakage of highly polluted effluents in river Yamuna through drain no eight originating in Haryana. Water supply to Delhi had to be cut off due to the presence of pollutants. Apparently, the Haryana government is least concerned about the court directives. The court had earlier directed the state government to file a progress report on the setting up of an effluent treatment plant at drain no eight.
