Or a picture which in your opinion ought to be seen by many, and not just you? CHANDIGARH TRIBUNE invites its readers to have their say. Please email at: haveyoursay@tribunemail.com Solve water woes With the advancing summer, city residents have started facing a shortage of water despite the fact that the MC has been claiming to provide round-the-clock water supply this season.

New Delhi, April 23 The Supreme Court on Monday directed the Chief Secretaries of Delhi and Haryana and the Secretary of the Ministry of Water Resources to hold a meeting immediately to discuss and sort out the issues relating to the supply of Yamuna river water to the National Capital.
