Bengaluru: The Congress, which faced ignominy in the just held Delhi polls by scoring a big zilch, has taken on Arvind Kejriwal, the Delhi CM. 

The water war is the in thing, fighting it out in the national capital. While Arvind Kejriwal urged his people to drink large amounts of water to beat the rising temperatures, the

Jharkhand unit of Congress has hit back at him, urging him to provide good quality drinking water first. 


Water war is certainly not new. Just before the elections, both Congress and BJP had left no stone unturned to criticise and censure Kejriwal for failing to provide good quality drinking water. 

In response, Kejriwal had promised that he would provide 100% safe and piped drinking water. 

A note on temperatures in North India as reported by Republic TV:  

The temperatures north and central India including the national capital have soared over 47 degrees Celsius at a few places for the past four-five days. The maximum temperature was recorded in Rajasthan's Churu on Wednesday, at 50 degrees Celsius, followed by 48.9 degrees in Ganganagar and Bikaner districts of Rajasthan. Bathinda in Punjab recorded 47.5 degrees Celsius, while it was 47.2 degrees in Delhi.

As regards the number of coronavirus cases, the national capital recorded as many as 792 cases, supposedly, the steepest hike recorded. The death toll stood at 303. The overall infection rates stood at 15,257. 

The Delhi government has allowed the running of buses with just a few passengers, shops and markets are open and closed on odd-even days while schools and colleges remain shut. 

It must be added that the Delhi CM has said that he would use the lockdown period to improve the healthcare system in the national capital.
