Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: Delhi government’s irrigation and flood control department has been taken away from labour minister Gopal Rai and allotted to urban development minister Satyendar Jain. Cabinet rejig comes at a time when Delhi was inundated after a couple of spells of heavy rain over the past few days. The order appointing Jain as the minister of flood and irrigation was issued on Friday.

Facing flak from the high court over the government’s failure to prevent water logging in the city, chief secretary Anshu Prakash has called for a high-level meeting of a dozen of stakeholders on Wednesday afternoon. Detailed mapping of areas across the Capital that are prone to water logging will be taken up as one of the agendas in the meeting.
