Despite severe winters in Haryana and Delhi, the temperature of the Jamuna water has risen. In particular, the Delhi government and AAP leaders are making statements to put pressure on Haryana over water. Delhi AAP leaders have complained that pollution in the Jamuna water is on the rise, for which they are blaming Haryana. In this connection, Chief Secretary to the Government of Haryana, Vijay Vardhan called a meeting of officials of several departments on Thursday. In which everyone’s opinion will be taken on the truth of the current environment and the demands made by Delhi.

According to reliable sources, an important meeting has been convened by Haryana Chief Secretary Vijay Vardhan in the committee room of the Haryana Secretariat at 12 noon. Apart from Dhera Khandelwal, Additional Chief Secretary, Haryana Pollution Control Department and Information Department, several officials including Haryana Municipal Corporation, Haryana Irrigation Department and Haryana Pollution Control Board have been called. At this point, there will be disagreement over the allegations being made by the Delhi Aam Aadmi Party government and its leaders. Not only that, the Chief Secretary will also take ground reports and feedback from all the officials on this issue so that the true picture can be put in front of everyone.

Haryana politics has been seen to heat up again. Complaining on behalf of the Delhi Water Board, Haryana has been blamed for increasing the level of ammonia in the Jamuna. The meeting will be co-chaired by Haryana Chief Secretary Vijay Vardhan and ACS of the Environment Department. It is alleged that Delhi’s water supply is being disrupted. Raghav Chadha, vice-president of the Delhi Water Board and AAP MLA, has been consistently making allegations against Haryana. Haryana is preparing to release dirty water into the Jamuna so that the truth can be answered.

Raghav Chadha, vice-chairman of the Delhi Water Board (DJB), has released a video blaming Haryana for littering the Jamuna and increasing ammonia. It is claimed that ammonia levels are being increased in the Jamuna by discharging contaminated water without treatment. But experts in Haryana say that if Delhi has to use the water for drinking, they will have to treat it themselves. On the other hand, Raghav Chadda said that it is right for Delhi to get clean water and Delhi is getting less water than it needs and it is also getting so much ammonia, which is why water treatment centers in DJB are facing frequent problems. Plants should also be kept closed. A tanker has been arranged to alleviate the water shortage in the affected areas, the board claimed.

Ammonia up to ppm in water of Jamuna It is claimed from the water of Delhi that there was ammonia up to p ppm in the water of Jamuna, due to which the capacity of Wazirabad, Chandrawal tree was reduced by 50 per cent and Okhla tree was also damaged. This is a lie and there has been a lot of fluctuation in the level of ammonia in the river Jamuna for the last one year. The board said contaminated water from two canals in Haryana, DD-1 and DD-2, had reached the Jamuna. The DD-2 canal contains a large amount of pigments from industry which is why it is called die drain. DD-1 and DD-2 have merged with each other near Shimla Gujran village in Panipat district of Haryana. These canals continue from Shimla Gujran village to Khojkipur village on Jamuna river. This place is considered as a major center of pollution in the Jamuna. Ammonia levels sometimes range from 25 to 40 ppm.

Haryana government’s response

The Haryana government has said it does not agree with the suggestion to increase environmental flow in the Delhi section of the Jamuna River as it could cause environmental catastrophe in the state. According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature, ecological flow is the flow of water and flow in a river, wetland or coastal area to control ecology and their benefits. The National Institute of Hydrology (NIH) in Roorkee has recommended in its study that 23 cubic meters of water should be released from Hathnikund Barrage in Yamunanagar, Haryana, instead of 10 cubic meters per second in January and February to protect the ecosystem of the Jamuna River. Hathnikund Barrage controls the flow of rivers through the West Jamuna Canal and the East Jamuna Canal, respectively, for irrigation in Haryana and Uttar Pradesh and for water supply to Delhi.

Explain that the Supreme Court on Wednesday took a self-explanatory view on the pollution of the Jamuna River and sought a reply from Haryana in the matter. Earlier, the Delhi Water Board had alleged that polluted water from Haryana was being discharged into the Jamuna river. A bench of Chief Justice SA Babade, Justice AS Bopanna and Justice V Ramasubramaniam, hearing the Delhi Water Board’s plea, alleged that the neighboring state of Haryana was releasing excess ammonia-contaminated water into the Jamuna River while mixing it with chlorine. Becomes carcinogenic. The bench said that we are giving notice without any controversy. We are taking self-knowledge of pollution in the whole river Jamuna.
