SANGLA HILL

Widespread torrential rain followed by heavy windstorm lashed the city and suburban area of the teshil.

Reportedly, the rain not only caused traffic problems but also affected electricity and communication system .The torrential rain exposed the height of negligence of the TMA due to which all the main city roads congested bazaars and all the adjacent residential, industrial and commercial areas were inundated with rainwater and sewerage.

The decades old chocked sewerage and drainage lines overflowed due to heavy rain in the city. The downpour also exposed the TMA working whose officials could not drain out the rainwater from various city parts. The heavy rain in the city hit the ever-ill-prepared TMA, creating pools of water on roads after which worst traffic jams were witnessed on almost every major road. The water entered several houses due to the delay in work of sewerage lines.
