Mumbai: Torrential rains have lashed Mumbai and the Konkan region in the past few days. Normal life has been completely uprooted with water logging on streets and transport being severely affected.
The city has faced continuous pouring over the past 24 hours, flooding the low-lying areas of Central Mumbai, in Dadar, Parel, Worli and other suburbs. Flights to and from Mumbai were delayed by over 30 minutes whereas Central Railway and harbor lines were running 15-25 minutes late.
Amidst this public inconvenience, lots of complaints have been lodged regarding increasing number of pot holes, which is a worrisome situation in every monsoon and questions Shiv Sena-BJP ruled BMC.
Even the Britannia pumping station which was recently inaugurated to control areas like Hind Mata, Parel junction are one of the major hot spot areas that remain flooded.
With huge traffic jams at all the junctions; it seems that monsoon of 2016 is going to be no different from the previous ones.
