Heavy rainfall along with thunderstorms and strong winds in the national capital Monday led water logging at several places, including the farmers protest sites on Delhi borders.
With waterlogged tents and soaked firewood, farmer protesters camped at Delhi border points — Singhu, Tikri and Ghazipur — had a difficult morning.
This MET department has predicted intense wet spells and thunderstorms to continue for the next 2 days in Delhi and neighbouring areas of Chandigarh, Haryana and Punjab. Northwestern parts of the country including UP and Rajasthan will also experience similar weather conditions till January 5.
