KOKRAJHAR, June 12 � The problem of waterlogging in the Kokrajhar Municipal area due to poor and improper drainage system and the haphazard growth of the township has taken a serious turn. For the last one week, even normal downpours have left several areas of the city submerged under water.
Heavy downpours have overflooded areas like Tengapara, Santinagar, Subhaspally, Bidhanpally, Gaurnagar, Mijingnagar, Bagansali, Narabari, Thanapara while most of the bylanes in Kokrajhar town areas are under knee-deep water. Even the main roads like JD Road, Police point, Hanuman Mandir area are also under water making it almost impossible to conduct any business transaction.
The residents of the town feel that unless the city�s main drain is declogged and cleared, storm water drainage would continue to pose problems.
