The crippling heat strained low-income households, which often have poor access to water and cooling, and tested the endurance of outdoor workers toiling in the searing sun, forcing them to take frequent breaks.

Congress workers held a 'Matka Phod' protest in Delhi's Krishna Nagar to highlight the water crisis and accused both the AAP-led Delhi government and the BJP-led central government of neglect and public deception.
