“There are a lot of problems. The old people and kids are facing problems in commuting. How do we move on these roads? BMC is not doing anything. When we go to them for help they say that they have sent their workers but nobody comes,” said a local resident.

Constant downpour has affected normal lives of the people in Mumbai not just by water logging but lack of cleanliness as well.

“We are facing many problems. The people are disappointed. Children are not able to go to school. There are lots of holes on the road. Plastic carry bags are also increasing day by day. Lack of cleanliness is resulting in the increase of mosquitoes and thereby diseases like dengue and malaria also increasing. We are very disappointed,” said another resident.

Heavy downpour has lead to disorder in the city leading to damage of property, water logging, traffic snarls and unhygienic conditions.
