Rohtak, September 13

The recent spell of rainfall in Rohtak has put residents to grave inconvenience. Rainwater has accumulated in several residential colonies, including the HSVP sectors, as well as marketplaces and old city areas.

Thanks to the waterlogged roads and streets across the city, the residents are having a harrowing time while going to their workplaces and carrying out other day-to-day activities.

Rohtak MLA and Congress Legislative Party (CLP) chief whip Bharat Bhushan Batra has maintained that the Haryana Government was directly responsible for the miserable condition in which the residents find themselves.

“The BJP-JJP coalition government in the state has blatantly ignored the Rohtak Assembly segment, which has made life hell for residents,” alleged Batra.

Difficult times

Due to the waterlogged roads and streets across the city, residents are having a harrowing time while going to their workplaces and carrying out other day-to-day activities.

Condition has improved

The condition of the city regarding waterlogging has improved considerably following the commissioning of a water-disposal project worth Rs12 crore. — Manish Grover, BJP Vice-President and former minister of state for cooperatives

The sitting MLA pointed out that all roads of Rohtak city were badly damaged and waterlogged and the sewerage system had collapsed in several areas of Rohtak due to the failure of the authorities concerned in making prior arrangements to deal with the situation.“The recent spell of rain has exposed the hollowness of the tall claims made by the state authorities and the district administration regarding the preparedness for prompt disposal of rainwater,” he stated.
