India’s tech capital Bengaluru will have no water supply till Tuesday as heavy rainfall continues to batter city, resulting in flooding and traffic jams, reported NDTV.
The Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board has arranged free-of-cost tankers to provide water in areas where the supply through taps has been suspended.
The supply was cut after water entered the pumping stations in Mandya district, reported ANI. “The officials of the Mandya district are busy in draining out water from the pumping station,” said Chief Minister Basvaraj Bommai. “The situation is expected to come under control by evening. The technical team is working on the emergency mode to restart the machinery.”
