AGARTALA, May 18, 2018: Despite Chief Minister claiming to solve the flood issue in the state, the overnight rain which started since Thursday night had caused severe damage in parts of the city.
CM Deb also paid a visit to Banamalipur to check the ongoing water evacuation work and to inquire about the inconvenience faced by the locals in the area.
“It is not possible for me to repair the whole drainage system of the city because it has been done unscientifically. Already Agartala has been declared as ‘Smart City’ and I have also immediately issued order to release 7 crore rupees for the maintenance of drainage system of the city. I might not be able to do much this season but from the next year onward our government will ensure that there will not be any flood or water logging problem in my constituency and in the entire Agartala city which the people are facing now”, said Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb.
