This crisis was triggered by residents who claimed that the municipal body did not drain the canals.In many portions of the city, commuters had to face sickness, and vehicle movement was interrupted as a result of waterlogging.The rain today reveals the demise of a smart city.A significant amount of money was expended on the image of a smart city, but the reality is entirely different.

On the other hand, the rain has stoked the fears of the paddy farmers, who came in mandis with their produce.The water soaked the paddy grains in the mandis.They also encouraged the government and arhiyas to begin the procurement as soon as possible.
