Incessant rains again wreak havoc in Guwahati in the form of massive waterlogging in parts of the premier north eastern city.
Many areas in Zoo Road areas along with Chandmari, Lachitnagar, Nabin Nagar have yet to get out of the waterlogging.
“The river Bharalu is full of water. There is little option to divert the rainwaters to the Brahmaputra through the river Bharalu. We have deployed three huge pump sets to send the waters to the Bharalu river after closing the sluicegate,” said the water resource development officials.
“It would take time if the rains continue. But we hope the plight would be over within the next couple of hours,” officials told Assam Times.
Notably, many areas in the city came under the rainwaters three days back when a heavy downpour lashed the city.
The situation marginally improved but deteriorated again following more rains during the last 24 hours.
