BBMP bosses visit rain hit areas

On Thursday night, rain water had swelled out of a manhole and gushed into several houses in the area. People had spent the night throwing out water from their houses. During the inspection people complained to the administrator and the commissioner that nobody visited their area to clean the manhole before the monsoons, which led to the flooding.

The residents said they informed the BBMP last night, following which the manhole was desilted. The Palike also helped people in draining out the flood water from their houses. In this area, the Palike is concreting the road by spending Rs 15 lakh. Bharat Lal Meena directed the officials to complete the work within a month.

Later, the Commissioner visited Nayandahalli and inspected the major storm water drain, which overflows during rain. He directed the officials to desilt the drain for the smooth flow of water.
