Heavy rains led to water logging on NH-8 causing huge traffic jams and forcing authorities to shut down schools in Delhi's satellite city, Gurgaon.
It is chaos all around in the city of Gurgaon which was caused by the water logging due to heavy rains. Thousands of commuters were left stranded on Gurgaon-Delhi Expressway and NH-8 due to massive traffic jam. As the chaos continued to prevail, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, has called an emergency meeting in Chandigarh to tackle the ongoing traffic jam and water logging problem. Currently the Deputy Commissioner is taking charge of the situation.
He said, "Considering the unprecedented rainfall and the flow of huge volume of water due to downward gradient from Delhi towards Gurgaon, prohibitory order under section 144 CRPC has been imposed near Hero Honda Chowk in the city. DEO has been directed to request all schools in the city to remain close today and tomorrow due to potholes and open manholes. "Civil agencies may requisition all infrastructure equipment at benchmark rates so as to reposition roads, traffic congestions and other necessary actions. For next three days, the flash flood management works shall be undertaken on quotations basis and all the contractors shall cooperate with the civic agencies."
Removal of the encroachment that has caused the water logging is the main plan of action. The Deputy Commissioner has appointed the concerned engineer or staff may undertake removal of such encroachment on urgent basis with summary information to the concerned owner. He added, "The traffic management will continue till the end of September i.e the monsoon season. CEO, Sheetla Mata Mandir Board shall make payments for all additional home guards even if it is beyond the competency of Chief Administrator considering the task at hand. Wherever the co-operation is not received the police may register cases against such delinquent officials till the end of the monsoon on request by civic agencies."
Hopefully, the officials will take care of this chaos and the problem will be put to an end soon. Brainbuxa will keep you posted on such news and updates across the nation. So don't forget to log into Brainbuxa for more.
