For decades now Delhites have been boating in the famous Purana Qila Lake for some couple & family time. But sadly, the lake has dried up due to rise in temperature, it would seem!
30 Second Window:
- As of now, it seems no authority is willing to take responsibility of the situation – with one stating that the lake was left to dry up to clean it!
- An official from ITDC was quoted saying that the department has not yet received an official nod from Archaeological Survey of India (ASI).
- Thus, work to restore the lake has not started! Can you believe that? Over 3,000 people visited the lake every weekend. Now? None!
- Ya’ll who love boating & used to visit the lake for some private time, better look for another place to chill out!
In the meanwhile, keep up with us as we check out more about this issue!
