Meanwhile, BJP spokesperson and son of former mayor and MLA Mukta Tilak, Kunal Tilak faced difficulties reaching the airport for a late-night flight due to traffic congestion from Sangamwadi.

In a letter to Pune Municipal Commissioner (PMC) Commissioner Rajendra Bhosale, Pune Rajya Sabha MP Medha Kulkarni urged prompt action to compensate residents for recent damage caused hy rains and be ready for the following monsoon season.

In the meantime, traffic congestion from Sangamwadi made it impossible for Kunal Tilak, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesman and son of former mayor and MLA Mukta Tilak, to get to the airport for a late-night departure. To get to the airport, he had to run, walk, get on two motorbikes, and request a rickshaw, emphasizing the importance of acting quickly.

The heavy rains in Pune resulted in considerable damage and distress calls from several communities. Kulkarni addressed the problems with the local authorities even though he wasn’t in the city. She conveyed her sorrow for the suffering of the people, especially the elderly, mothers, and kids who were submerged in water. She underlined how irreversible the loss was yet demanded payment for losses brought on by water intrusion, including refrigerators and TVs.

She further criticized the municipal corporation for neglecting malpractices and wrongdoings, leading to the city’s dire situation. She also emphasized the inadequate aid system in emergencies, indicating a failure of the corporation.

Kulkarni, in a letter, urged the PMC Commissioner to address recent rain damage and prepare for future monsoons. She called for immediate action against unauthorized constructions, proper organization and cleaning of rainwater drains, increasing riverbed depth to prevent flooding, clearing blocked drains, and enforcing rainwater harvesting. She also stressed the importance of maintaining the expected drain width, as per the Primer report, to prevent waterlogging and reduce citizens’ losses. Kulkarni urged for serious action to prevent future occurrences.
