Delhi is reeling under severe floods, but Kejriwal is enjoying holidays in Himachal
NEW DELHI: Days after DELHI government ministers mocked the Haryana government for the massive gridlock in Gurgaon, the capital came to a halt on Monday due to rain.
Waterlogging on almost all the major arterial roads lead to massive traffic snarls in south and central Delhi.Ring Road and Outer Ring Road, which carry the bulk of traffic, were the worst-affected. Traffic police said about 50% of the complaints received since morning pertained to waterlogging that caused jams in Jasola, Okhla, Apollo (towards Ashram), RTR towards IIT gate, Chelmsford Road towards Paharganj, Sarai Kale Khan towards DND, Sarita Vihar, Ashok Vihar, Defence Colony flyover and INA.
Residents blamed the civic agencies for not carrying out desilting work before monsoon. “Due to the incompetence of civic agencies, the people are suffering. Potholes have appeared on most of the roads and even light showers result in massive waterlogging,” said Chetan Sharma, president of Greater Kailash II RWA.
