The Meteorological Service has forecast heavy and heavy rainfall in several states from September 24, while a yellow warning was issued for the capital Delhi yesterday.
The monsoon not only devastates Delhi-NCR but also exposes the government’s negligence. Usually 108.5mm of rain falls in September and 58.5mm of rain has been recorded so far. The Meteorological Department has forecast heavy and heavy rain in many states starting September 24. Yesterday a yellow alert was issued for Delhi. Heavy rainfall is also likely in many parts of Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Odisha and Telangana. An orange alarm has also been issued in Uttarakhand for heavy rainfall over the next two days. IMD Senior Scientist RK Jenamani says an orange warning has been issued for Uttarakhand for heavy rainfall until September 25.
The condition of Uttar Pradesh has become deplorable due to the ongoing rain. Further intensification of the rain is forecast in western Uttar Pradesh on September 24, sparking fear among both the public and the administration. Several parts of Lucknow, the capital of Uttar Pradesh, have been under water in recent days, causing people to face serious problems. It seems that there will be no significant improvement in the situation for the next two or three days.
The condition of ‘Gurugram’, the dream city that has left its mark on the world, also deteriorated on Friday due to the rain. Gurugram seemed to have become ‘watergram’. With only 95mm of rain, the city was flooded. After the rain, there was flooding and traffic jams all over the city. From the industry to the colonies and larger society, I seem to be inundated. The underpasses built at key intersections of the city by spending crores of rupees are also submerged in water. It is worrying that there is also a risk of heavy rain on Saturday. That is, the unrest of both the people and the administration will increase.
