It was a deluge the like of which the city has seen rarely. Yesterday evening the city bore the brunt of heavy rainfall and it showed once again the poor infrastructure of the city. Citizens were caught unaware and were seen running for cover. Low lying areas resembled lakes with houses submerged. People had to wade through 2 feets of rain water near Lakdi ka pool and Khairatabad.
Monsoon come and go but the authorities seems to never wake up with citizen accepting the situation as part of their daily routine. To be out on the road during such deluge means the inevitable traffic jams and yesterday was the same with people stranded due to the poor conditions of the road which cannot bear even a small downpour leave alone the sort of rainfall which occurred yesterday.
