The monsoon showers have had an adverse affect on the lives and activities of Siliguri and other adjoining areas. Many areas are water-logged while others are struggling with rain water seeping into their houses.
Areas that fall near Siliguri like Fulbari-1 Panchkelguri, Majdurbasti, Ramnagar and Jamuribhita have been water logged. Meanwhile, the Munshi Premchand Primary School that is located in Majdurbasti has suspended all their classes after the rain water made its way in the school.
The residents are facing problems to conduct their daily business. Even cooking has become a difficult task in the houses of water-logged Panchkelguri.
Fulbari-1 Gram Panchayat’s Head, Tapan Singh, has been visiting the affected areas to take stock of the situation there. On the other hand, the Block Development Officer went to review the spar erosion in Porajhar.
The residents of Dhaknikata are also facing several problems due to water-logging. Moreover, the irregular rain has increased the hurdles for the people.
