Bathinda, September 26

Following the recent spell of rain, water from Chandbhan drain near Ablu village in Bathinda has submerged a bridge connecting dozens of villages and entered in fields. Many villages have been cut-off from the main road due to the submergence. Residents of nearby villages gathered near the bridge area and raised slogans against the district administration and the government for not providing a permanent solution to the problem.

Kothe Lal Singh, a farmer leader, said when it rains heavily, the water starts flowing over the bridge as it is of low height. Harpreet Singh, said, “Residents have to face the same problem every year. Despite bringing the matter into the notice of the district administration, no concrete steps have been taken, though senior officials visited the area to take stock of the situation.
