Sopore, Oct 23 (KNS): Water logging in Sopore is giving a tough time to the pedestrians. The commercial areas like Super Bazar, Downtown and College road are the worst hit as the pedestrians and vehicles were seen navigating through the waters.

“As seen in the past also, little or heavy rainfall causes a massive water logging due to the improper drainage system in the town,” local residents said.

Slamming the administration, they said that despite their repeated pleas to the administration for making a proper mechanism, the authorities did not show any interest.
