The recent showers in the city have led to foaming of the Varthur lake once again. Foam on the Varthur lake is recurrent phenomena in the city, however this time it spilled onto the Whitefield Main Road.

The foam billowed onto the road from the lake on Saturday and Sunday, making travel difficult for commuters.

Locals have also complained about the unbearable stink coming from the froth. “Can’t walk as toxic foam settles on skin, can’t drive as it settles on windscreen. The government seems to have no solution to this problem,” a resident told ANI.

The pictures and videos have been posted by the locals on social media, with many criticising the civic bodies for the utter disorder.

Last year in April, the froth on the lake had caused a traffic jam. More recently, on May 7, the city’s Bellandur lake caught fire. The resulting thick smog surrounded the heavily-polluted lake, making it difficult for the passers-by to breathe.
