Siliguri, 10 July (Sachin Kumar)
The streets of Siliguri have been water logged due to the continuous rainfall since Sunday evening. The local people of Matigara, Kharibari and Naxalbari block along with the Fulbari Panchayat areas and Shaktigarh, Ghogomali, Ashighar areas under Siliguri Municipal Corporation have been facing a lot of problems due to this.
Since the auto stand near N.J.P. Station has completely submerged under water, the local people, who use public transportation to reach their destination, are facing lots of problems.
The auto drivers have stated that providing the public transport facilities to the local people has been very tough due to the streets being submerged under water. They further added that it will be hard to predict what the rest of the monsoon has in store for the lot of us.
