New Delhi: Heavy rainfall in Bengaluru has left the city reeling under severe waterlogging. Waterlogging due to heavy rainfall, led to traffic jams. According to one of the locals waterlogging has has made driving very difficult.

Waterlogging due to heavy rainfall has ended up causing disruptions in the lives of normal people in several parts including Koramangala. Another local said that this situation happens every year and they have to pump out water due to a poor drainage system.

“Too much rain has taken place. We woke up in the morning and saw that waterlogging had started. Water on the road had come up to the level of the divider. After that, we started pumping water out of the road and basement. My whole basement has got submerged under water,” a local resident told ANI.

“This happens every year, waterlogging takes place after the rain and we have to pump out water. There is no permanent solution. When the road was being made, the drainage system wasn’t prepared well. It leads to many difficulties for the public, many women have actually slipped and fallen into the water,” another local said.

Earlier in July, Karnataka suffered heavy floods due to rains, after which rescue missions and relief work had to be carried out. Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai also had to seek financial assistance from the Centre.
