Rains in Bengaluru have caused water logging in Nallurhalli metro station, which was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi earlier this year. The 13.71 kilometer long stretch was inaugurated by the Prime Minister as a result of the Bengaluru Metro Phase II Project.
Several citizens took to social media to highlight the water logging in the important project, days after its inauguration.
Randeep Singh Surjewala, Congress general secretary and Karnataka in-charge, had questioned the state government and the officials making PM inaugurate incomplete projects. “Why is PM Modi inaugurating the Purple Metro Line without the construction of the mandatory metro link between Byappanahalli Metro Station and KR Puram Metro Station? Is it not correct that this missing Metro Link, which crosses over an electrified railway line, will take at least six months more to be completed.”
Rainfall in Bengaluru
The Meteorological Department had said that Bengaluru will experience light to moderate rainfall/thunderstorms during the evening and night time on April 4,5,and 6.
Besides the metro station, several other places in the city also experienced water logging, including ITPL Main Road, Varthur Kodi, Mahadevpura, and surrounding areas.
Even the air traffic of Bengaluru city got affected due to the rains. Over 10 flights were diverted due to inclement weather in Bengaluru and the departure of six flights was delayed.
This is not the first project which was inaugurated by Prime Minister Modi, which was affected due to heavy rains. Earlier this year, PM Modi had inaugurated the Bengaluru-Mysuru Expressway. Heavy rains resulted in a series of accidents on the road, which was caused by the rains.
