A bench headed by Chief Justice T S Thakur, which sought the status report in two days, issued notice to the Centre and Uttar Pradesh government on the plea of AAP government which has also sought a direction for ensuring security on the barrages on Munak Canal in Haryana.

The bench also comprising Justice UU Lalit was initially reluctant to take up the plea of Delhi government and rapped it for approaching the apex court instead of resolving the issue at government-to-government level.

"You people instead of solving the problem at government-to-government level are moving to Supreme Court. You want order from the Supreme Court. You want everything on the platter. You ministers are sitting in the court instead of going to the field. You rest in AC chambers and you want order from the court", the bench said while referring to the presence of Delhi Water Minister Kapil Mishra inside the court.

However, after repeated persistence from senior advocate Rajeev Dhawan, appearing for Delhi government, the bench asked the Haryana government to make the necessary arrangement for resumption of water supply in the capital.
