Those using public transport were worst hit. People commuting by foot remained a harried lot due to chocked drains, slippery roads and traffic snarls at every crossing. The heavy downpour in the city exposed its poor drainage system once again. Almost all the localities including posh ones like Civil, After Lines, Kareli, Gausnagar, Meerapur, Attrsuiya, Dariyabad, Mutthiganj, Allahpur, Baghambari Gaddi, Matlyara Road, Sarvodya Nagar, Puda Padayain, Alopibagh and adjoining areas were flooded, It was quite difficult to move on the roads due to slippery condition.
The condition of the main road in Gausnagar is highly pathetic. Amir, a resident of Alopibagh said that we have to be very cautious while moving on the road of the locality. Several people got injured due to slippery conditions. Another resident of George Town rued that her daughter had to face problems while going to school. The school bus does not come there due to the damaged main road. The problem aggravates at Babu Tri section where a slight shower is enough to make the road slippery. Similarly, the condition of roads, which were dug up, for laying of underground sewage pipelines, further deteriorated due to rain. The slush has made it difficult for the commuters to move.
