The state government counsel claimed that the senior officials were not in their control indicating the power sharing between Lt Governor and the Delhi government but the court said that it was not concerned whether the senior officials were in control or not.

On 31 August, the court also pulled up civic agencies and the Public Works Department (PWD) on the waterlogging issue in the city and said there was “no justification for clogged drains”.

India’s national capital New Delhi came to a standstill due to waterlogging after three hours of heavy rains on Wednesday.
