A rainstorm caused traffic jams and severe waterlogging in the city, uprooting trees and flooding low-lying areas. This led to disturbances in rail and flight movement, with nearly 20 flights delayed. 

The Pune Municipal Corporation’s (PMC) disaster management helpline received 350 calls from citizens complaining about waterlogging, flooding and potholes following the heavy rainfall in the city on Saturday. The newly elected MP, Murlidhar Mohol, reviewed the situation and stated that since the helpline is not functioning properly, he will follow up with the Centre on financial aid for resolving disaster management and flooding problems.

PMC has assigned more personnel at the ward level to address the concerns. Head of PMC’s disaster management Ganesh Sonune said, “More manpower is provided to a particular ward office based on need.”

People can reach out to PMC on 02025506800 and 02025501269 to register their complaints.

A rainstorm caused traffic jams and severe waterlogging in the city, uprooting trees and flooding low-lying areas. This led to disturbances in rail and flight movement, with nearly 20 flights delayed. 

Citizens and commuters are complaining about the increasing threats due to waterlogged roads which further damage the vehicles along with causing injuries.  The waterlogged roads make it tough for the ones driving two-wheelers to navigate through the city roads. They have further expressed that, no precautions are taken for commuters’ safety. Signage for open drains or ongoing road works are not in place either.
