Cuttack: Delay in the desiltation drive on city drains, to be undertaken by the Cuttack Municipal Corporation , has resulted in a nightmarish situation for residents.
Most of the drains are choked with garbages, as the monsoon is likely to arrive early.Corporators allege that more than 70 per cent of the drains in the city are choked.
We will hold discussions by them and they will be desilting of the major drains in the city," said Mohapatra.Small drains in various places will be the desilted by the CMC, added Mohapatra.
Several low-lying areas in the city, like Buxi Bazar, Stewartpatna, Bajrakabati, Friends Colony and Kehsarpur , are routinely water-logged.
"The situation will only grow worse with the oncoming rains," said Giribala Behera , corporator of ward four.
