'Scared Games' of Mumbai monsoon: Why rain washes away maximum city every year 11.7.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
The rain in Mumbai continues and with it, thousands of problems. The easiest thing to do is to blame the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) for their high-handedness and under-preparedness in handling monsoons every year. Sure, the BMC is the governing body of the city, and it is its responsibility, along with other bodies such as the MMRDA, and Western and Central Railway to ensure that the drainage system is in order, potholes are fixed, and bridges are sturdy enough to not collapse or develop cracks. Yet, in the past fortnight, the city has witnessed bridge collapses, roads caving in and at least 35 deaths due to the heavy spell of rains. The big question is why does Mumbai flood like this every year? A report by Indian Environment Portal highlighted how the Bandra-Worli Sea Link and the construction of Bandra-Kurla Complex (which is ironically a smart city) play a role in this. Bandra-Kurla Complex or BKC was built over mangroves, which are the natural barrier that prevents flooding in the ...

‘Be prepared to prevent waterlogging’ 11.7.2018 The Tribune
New Delhi, July 10 PWD Minister Satyendar Jain today directed all city agencies and departments responsible for cleaning and desilting drains to ensure prevention of waterlogging on roads during the monsoon. Jain directed that public complaints should be addressed on priority and call centres kept functional at all times.

Two PWD officers suspended for dereliction of duty 11.7.2018 The Tribune
New Delhi, July 10 Two engineers of the Public Works Department have been suspended for dereliction of duty after an inspection by CM Arvind Kejriwal of some drains in Ambedkar Nagar area here pointed at discrepancies in the status reports of desilting of drains. Kejriwal, who was accompanied by PWD Minister Satyendar Jain, found yesterday that the status reports on desilting of drains were misleading and officers had misinformed the government. “It is also informed that two officers have been suspended for dereliction of duty,” read statement. “Two engineers have been suspended for dereliction of duty and giving false reports on desilting of drains,” Deputy CM Manish Sisodia said. The government said thousands of crores of rupees are spent every year for desilting the drains before the monsoon. However, it is an open secret that most of this desilting exercise by the civic agencies is just an exercise on papers. It is a multi-crore scam spreading all civic agencies, claimed the Delhi government in a ...
