Bengaluru: IT City- Uses Boats To Rescue People Stranded In Rain.

As Gurgaon near Delhi was battered by the rain into one massive no-go zone,  it had a mirror image  down south in Bengaluru.

Incessant overnight rain turned Bengaluru’s formidable traffic jams into a horror story, including on roads near Electronics City, which houses Infosys and thousands of IT workers.

The fire department used boats to rescue people who were stranded in the rain waters.

Fallen trees added to the problem in many areas.

Worst-hit were areas near the city’s lakes – or what had once been lakes.

The administration, despite annual promises, clearly still finds it difficult to cope with the heavy rain.

Bengaluru has had a bad week. Monday to Wednesday saw more traffic on the roads after government buses went on strike. Thursday saw protests over a river-water sharing issue. And Friday has left the city stranded in water.
