Heavy rain in Kolkata raises serious concern

Kolkata rains, trinamool congress, Jangipur polls, NDRF, Mamata Banejee, IMD, Bay of Bengal, Bhabanipur Constituency

With large areas of Bhabanipur and South Kolkata inundated due heavy rains for the last one-week, the issue has raised serious concern among the state government and Trinamool Congress leadership.

Chief Secretary H K Dwivedi held a meeting with the NDRF authority and district administration ahead of by-polls in Bhabanipur, Samserganj and Jangipur polls.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banejee said the flood-like situation exists in Samserganj and Jangipur as well. “We humans do not have hands in the works of nature. Global warming has raised the number of low pressure and depression, thunderstorms and lightning. However, we are trying our best by keeping ourselves prepared. With poll dates nearing in Samserganj and Jangipur in Murshidabad, we have to increase the preparedness,” Mamata Banerjee said.

IMD has predicted another low pressure on Bay of Bengal and depression in the weekend, which has kept the state administration worried ahead of the by-polls. Mamata Banerjee also expressed concern about weather conditions and she urged people to vote even if there is rain or thunderstorm.

Apart from Kolkata, large areas in East and West Midnapore are also inundated due to heavy rainfall. “Similar situation prevails in Murshidabad. I had sent Firhad Hakim for poll related work and he found the situation pretty serious,” Banerjee said.

Even various wards of Bhabanipur Constituency are under water. The Nabanna sources said that the Chief Secretary has discussed the situation with various district magistrates and NDRF have been kept ready, in case people need sto be evacuated from the low-lying areas in Kolkata and districts.
