Meanwhile, the state government announced in the Assembly that the rains have claimed 62 persons in the state since June, and the Supreme Court lashed out at the government for not looking into the issue of solid waste management which it believed was one of the causes of the current waterlogging crisis. "You see," said a bench of Justices M B Lokur and Deepak Gupta, "Delhi is getting buried under mountain loads of garbage and Mumbai is sinking. But yet, the government does not do anything.
