Panchkula, July 20

Rain today exposed the tall claims of the Municipal Corporation, which said there would be no waterlogging in any part of the city during the monsoon, as most roads were submerged in water.

Main roads as well as internal roads in sectors and villages were in 2 to 3 ft deep water. However, water did not enter houses in any part of the city or villages as was witnessed during the past couple of years.

Mayor Kulbhushan Goyal took stock of the situation. He asked officials to provide relief to people from waterlogging by pumping out water.

People in Sector 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 19, Kishangarh and Abheypur villages, the Industrial Area, Phase 1 and Phase 2, faced inconvenience due to waterlogging.

MC officials had claimed that streets and road gullies had been cleaned at a cost of around Rs1 crore. However, the waterlogging has exposed these claims. There were reports of many cars getting stuck on roads. — TNS
