‘Chinks uncovered’

Zones where works are in advancement for underground power link works, stormwater channels and where streets were uncovered for improvement ventures were seriously hit. CPI(M) pioneer Ch. Babu Rao visited the immersed settlements, including L.V.S. Nagar in the 57th city division where flood water went into houses. Mr. Rao said the state had been waterlogged since Sunday night and no official help was reached out to the occupants of the territory.
