GulfHindi English Desk: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal expressed gratitude to the army on behalf of the Delhi government. He shared on Twitter that after 20 hours of continuous hard work, the first gate of the ITTO Barrage at ITO has been opened. The engineer regiment of the army and the divers team have made a significant contribution to this work. He also thanked the navy team for assisting in the opening of the gate. After this achievement, the remaining five gates will be opened soon.
Efforts are being made to open the five closed gates of the ITTO Barrage to release Yamuna river water rapidly. Currently, only one gate has been opened, and the water discharge has started. The engineer regiment of the army and the navy team are working together to open the gates. According to preliminary information, the remaining gates will also be opened soon, allowing better discharge of water from the Yamuna.
The ITTO Barrage has five gates operated by the Haryana government. These gates have been closed, preventing the water from the Yamuna from flowing out of Delhi. The Delhi government has repeatedly appealed to the Haryana government to open these gates and hand over the management of Yamuna’s water to them. This demand has been made several times before, but now discussions will be held on this issue again.
Due to the accumulation of silt, the gates were jammed. The high water level of the Yamuna made the work challenging. However, a compressor has been brought from the Kundli plant to remove the silt. If the gates do not open even after this, all the gates will be cut and separated. This work could not be completed by Friday evening, and action will be taken on it soon.
