We talk about global warming. But nobody who is in Guwahati can believe this now. Guwahati is flooded and in all the main areas like the GNB road, Zoo Road, Maligaon, Santipur etc. The most important aspect of the floods in Guwahati is that it rained only for some time and the entire city was brought to its knees. And this is just the beginning of the monsoons. Traffic crawled throughout the day and school children and office goers had a tough time.
Residents are crying hoarse complaining about the apathy of the Government in dealing with the scenario. Montu Talukday a resident of Silpukhuri commented “This is a regular occurrence every year and I have to fold my trousers and take out my shoes and walk even for essentials atleast seven days a year and the Government talks about making this a global city”
The All Guwahati Students Union (AGSU) has staged a dharna to protest against the apathy of the Government.
