According to the India Meteorological Department, the national capital will face heavy rainfall in some parts of Delhi and Haryana on Wednesday.
Minto Bridge underpass reopens in Delhi
The area near Connaught Place was waterlogged due to heavy rains twice in three days. Due to waterlogging, a 56-year-old man lost his life after drowning on Sunday after his truck got stuck in eight feet-deep water on the Minto Bridge underpass.
After the tragic incident, the AAP government was criticised by the opposition party. However, CM Arvind Kejriwal said the government should work together instead of playing blame games with each other as the city is already facing crises because of coronavirus pandemic.
