The members of Santacruz section of H-ward Federation are sceptical about whether their ward is ready for the rains. They dread the water-logging, transmission of waterborne diseases and other issues that the monsoon will bring with it.

HT accompanied the members of Advanced Locality management (ALM) and Santacruz section of H-west ward Federation to identify the flood-prone spots.

 They examined North Avenue, South Avenue and Main Avenue outfalls located in Gazdar Bandh Road area. All of them portrayed a sorry picture.

Local civic officials chose not to react to the remarks by the ALM about monsoon preparedness. Despite repeated calls, Sunil M Dhamane, H-west ward officer, was not available for comment. He did not respond to our text messages either.
