Massive jams in Gurgaon has translated into war between the chief ministers of Delhi and Haryana.
As the commute between Delhi and Gurgaon stretched to hours last night, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar tweeted accusingly at Arvind Kejriwal.
Mr Khattar retweeted a comment and alleged “non-cooperation by Delhi.”
Mr. @ArvindKejriwal should be asked this.Frustrated by non-cooperation by Delhi Govt,we have got it declared as NH.https://twitter.com/Sanprasar/status/758519972767432704 …
The Haryana government says that a large amount of water exits Gurgaon through the Najafgarh drain, which flows through Delhi but is blocked partly.
Mr Kejriwal, who will go for a 10-day meditation and vipassana course tomorrow, has not commented yet but his deputy Manish Sisodia hit back at Mr Khattar.
Mr Sisodia tweeted in Hindi: “Just renaming Gurgaon as Gurugram does not mean develooment. For development, you need plans and execution. Jumlon se Jam Nahin Khulega (platitudes won’t resolve jams).”
Heavy rain, leading to flooded roads, left people suffering jams that have spilled over to the morning. One commuter complained that he reached home after 12 hours.
