Anand Kumar(a tourist), who came from the Delhi, said he liked to enjoy the drive of the solar mini-cruise after hearing a lot about it. But, after hearing the news that the boating being restricted in sukhna and the solar mini-cruise had been grounded for the time being he felt sad.
One of the workers handling the boating said for the period being, the action of the solar mini-cruise ship in the Sukhna Lake had been rusticated due to the low-water level. Besides the solar mini-cruise, the working of shikaras and boats has also been confined. CITCO located the red flags to alert the people enjoying boating not to move further as they might get stuck in the mud.
Besides the mini-cruise, the boating has also been confined to the region of the lake where the water-level is high. The water level of the Sukhna has diminished further and recorded 1152. 70 ft.
