Even amid District Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) guidelines barring devotees from performing Chhatt Puja on the ghats of Yamuna, visuals of crowds taking a dip in the froth-filled, toxic Yamuna emerged online on Wednesday, 10 November.
A video shared on Twitter by news agency ANI shows a worker sprinkling water on the Yamuna to keep the foam away from the shore. And that’s not all. The worker, identified as Ashok Kumar, was specially instructed to do so the whole day.
Later in the day, videos from South Delhi’s Kalindi Kunj captured bamboo barricades being placed in the river in an attempt to prevent the foam from floating towards the banks.
Needless to say, netizens were confused with this solution and didn’t waste much time to churn out funny memes about the situation . The authorities were trolled all over Social media .
