Sopore, Mar 2: Due to continuous incessant rains waterlogging was experienced in various parts of Sopore in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district that lead to a large chunk of population in deep distress, besides turning the roads and lanes into shambles.

During the recent rains that lashed parts of Kashmir, water flowed into most of the areas of Sopore town including on roads. The worst hit areas of town were especially low lying places of Sher Colony, Tulibal, Mahrajpora, Ningli Bala, Alamdar Colony, Krankshivan Colony, Model town, Jalalabad, Daranambal and Tarzoo.


The water has inundated lanes and by-lanes in many other areas of town. The local residents of these areas said that the people are facing immense hardships and the authorities have failed to mitigate their suffering.

Incessant rains for the past couple of days has led to water logging and water has entered into many houses. The rains have exposed the defunct drainage system and callous attitude of the government, said locals.


The residents of most affected inundated areas of town said that due to the poor drainage system in the entire Sopore town, water logging has become common for them. The locals said that they cannot go outside their homes due to water logging on their lanes and by-lanes.

However, ADC Sopore S A Raina said that they have pressed men and machinery on job to pump out the rain water from the affected localities.
