‘BMC needs to weed out corruption, dereliction of duties to make Mumbai pothole-free,’ say experts, activists
All Mumbaikars have dreamt of pothole-free roads which get washed away every monsoon. The BrihanMumbai Municipal Corporation recently announced Rs 5.800 crore plan to concretise 400km roads to make roads pothole-resistant.
The experts and activists though remain skeptical and averred that the evasive target could only be achieved if the civic body weeds out corruption as well as dereliction of duties from the road department.
Commenting on the grand plan of concretising roads every year, “A few years back a vigilance committee was set up to inquire about some 40 roads that were found to be of inferior quality. The road department has seen huge corruption, officials are not seen on the field monitoring the road work. So, to get good roads not only concretisation but proper supervision of work is also necessary,” said Nikhil Desai, an activist.

Mumbai: Good rainfall expected by Friday after monsoon break
Mumbaikars, it’s been a little hot and humid these days, has it not? The city and suburbs will be experiencing significant rainfall within the next 48 hours.
The rainfall comes after a ‘break monsoon’. What is it? IMD official Sushma Nair says it “occurs when the monsoon trough (which causes rainfall) moves north of its normal position towards the foothills of the Himalayas, at which point the rest of the country experiences less rain.”
“Mumbai has been in a break-monsoon-like condition for the past 10 to 15 days, but now we are anticipating increased rainfall activity within the next 48 hours,” Nair further explained.
Don’t forget to carry your umbrellas, raincoats!
