Incessant rains trigger flood threat in Langate villages

Flood control deptt in deep slumber


Langate, Apr 20 (KNS): Incessant rains have triggered flood threat in several villages of Langate constituency in north Kashmir’s Kupwara district.
KNS correspondent after travelling several areas of Langate constituency reported that nonstop rains have raised water levels above the danger mark points in drains and Nallaha’s and water is flowing over the roads and in most of the villages.
In several villages water has gushed into shops, residential houses and commercial complexes but the authorities are yet to turn up to come to the rescue of flood hit populations.
The residents of Sudergund, Hangah, Maratgam, Batagund and Shanoo told KNS correspondent that poor drainage system is the cause of flood like situation in many villages of Langate constituency, which they said, didn’t get the timely attention of the concerned authorities. They said that even this time when a flood like situation is prevailing in several areas, the authorities of flood control department are not paying head to the cries of local population over the demand for flood control measures.
