Exclamation Heavy rains! Mumbai flooded as usual

Heavy rains! Mumbai flooded as usual



Heavy to very heavy rains are likely to lash Mumbai and its neighbouring areas. The rainfall has caused traffic snarls as many roads and streets in the metropolis were flooded and people were seen wading through knee-deep water. Many trains are either cancelled or running late.

Re: Heavy rains! Mumbai flooded as usual

Only so much can be done with Mumbai's reclaimed low lying land, sometimes the high tide coincides with the heavy rains to make matter worse. The important question is, has enough been done to do what can be done, like storm drains, some pumping of water, etc. If this is done one has to live with the issues, if not then we have administration to blame.

I believe Shiv Sena has held the BMC for decades now, and have perfected a system of gundagardi and hafta system, with mohalla pramukhs and corporators making sure nothing gets done without their cut. This bigshot Gujju I know, couldn't add a couple rooms to his house (yes, he has a house in prime area of Mumbai) .. until he had paid negotiated rate of 3 lakhs.. only then was material allowed to come in for construction. This family plays in 100s of crores, yet they were helpless before the gundas of Shiv Sena.
