Guwahati is once again reeling under artificial floods. Heavy downpour since Friday flooded the city of Guwahati on Sunday.
Reportedly, flash floods have submerged Lakhimi Nagar, Wireless, Jatia and Tarun Nagar areas of the city. Water is heavily flowing over the streets of Guwahati finding no other outlet.
It has become a recurring phenomenon of the city causing hindrance in commutation for public and private transport system.
Meanwhile, motor pumps are being used to divert flood water into the Bharalu River in Anil Nagar area in the city.
The artificial flood of Guwahati has made the people suffer since a long time. But no major steps have been taken by the government of Assam in controlling the artificial flood scenario.
The rapidly developing metropolitan environment has indiscriminately changed the large vacant lands and natural drainage controls which has changed the ecology and worsened the artificial flood situation of Guwahati.
