Gurgaon: Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Monday undertook an aerial survey of Gurugram after heavy rainfall triggered water-logging and traffic jams in the city two days back.
CM Khattar had said his visit to Gurgaon will be to get a first hand information on the problem of waterlogging and traffic jams which he attributed to various factors including overflowing of Badshahpur drain.
On Friday, heavy rains and subsequent waterlogging had crippled several parts of the city leaving thousands of people stranded for hours. Schools were also ordered to remain shut by the district administration in the wake of water-logging in several parts of the city.
CM Khattar had called an emergency meeting in Chandigarh to tackle the ongoing traffic jam and waterlogging problem. He had also said that there was complete coordination between the Police and Civil administration.
