BJP leader Sandeep Khardekar said, “Some parts of Kothrud faced waterlogging during the last two rains. We have given a list of such spots to the administration and appealed to them to take adequate steps.”

NCP urban cell head Nitin Kadam said, “The first few rains have exposed Pune Municipal Corporation’s (PMC) efforts to tackle the monsoon season as the city reported many tree fall incidents. We have appealed to the civic administration to speed up pre-monsoon works and clean nullahs, stormwater drains and chambers ahead of the rainy season.”

Meanwhile, the PMC commissioner has issued orders to the civic administration to speed up the cleaning works.

Civic officials claimed to have completed almost 50 per cent of pre-monsoon works.
