Nitesh Rane questions Uddhav Govt over Flooding issue of Mumbai during Monsoon


Mumbai: Nitesh Rane writes a letter to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and highlights the issue of waterlogging in the city during Monsoon. Nitesh Rane believes that every year BMC shows that they are taking adequate measures but on the field, nothing happens. Every year we get to hear the news of people losing their loved ones due to waterlogging in the city.

In a strongly worded letter to CM Uddhav Thackeray, Nitesh Rane writes, “Shiv Sena who been ruling the BMC for more than two decades now has no solution to offer to Mumbaikars who suffer from the issue of waterlogging in Mumbai during Monsoon. You want to change the face of Mumbai by painting and beautification but you have ignored the main issues of the city completely. This time good monsoon is expected so one can imagine what Mumbaikars will have to face in this monsoon.”

In his letter, Nitesh Points out that there are 386 dangerous spots in the city itself which have been tagged as Flooding points. Out of these, 28 places fall under one Section. Matunga, Wadala, and Sion these adjacent areas only have 25 flooding spots which have created havoc in Mumbai if it rains continuously.

According to Rane, there are 22 such days where Mumbai will face high tide and during that period if Mumbai faces 250ml rainfall then it will be a repeat of the 26 July havoc. Apart from installing pumps at these flooding spots what else you have done to give relief to Mumbaikars? Questions Nitesh in his letter.

“Will state govt and BMC make any forward plan to resolve these issues? Will there be any permanent solution that the State Government and BMC will look for? Or Mumbaikars will again have to suffer due to the issue of waterlogging just because State Government and BMC have no plans or will to solve the issue.”? Says Nitesh Rane
