As rain brought relief to residents it also made things difficult for many. Okhla residents faced hardship as several roads and streets were over flooded.
Even minutes after rain stopped, several areas in the locality are no-go area. A resident of Johri Farm wrote: “I would like to share a picture of horrendous condition of Johri Farm during monsoon. Please tag our MLA and concerned authorities to let them know the condition of Johri Farm.”
This is not one incident as residents have been talking about such situations for the last many months.
It was only a few days ago when Shaheen Bagh resident Md Ansar launched a campaign in the locality to convince authorities to address the water woes of their lane. He said for months a street in Shaheen Bagh continues to be over flooded with residents facing hardship.
A TV channel too had aired the video of the waterlogged street but it appears nothing positive has taken place.
Moreover, residents are deeply upset with waterlogged streets as they become breeding ground for mosquito and that too at a time when reports have surfaced of cases of dengue, chikungunya, malaria and other diseases are emanating from the national Capital.
