Buses will not ply at Kashmere Gate ISBT

Due to heavy rains, the Yamuna’s spate has left Delhi in disarray. Yamuna broke the 45-year-old record on Wednesday and the water in the river continues to rise continuously. With the increase of water in Yamuna, all the measures in Delhi seem insufficient. The water of the river has started entering inside the city, due to which the situation of boat movement has come on the roads. People are leaving their homes on the banks of the Yamuna.
