Flooding Issue: Bhubaneswar MP Requests Defence Min To Allow For A Drain Inside 120 Battalion

Bhubaneswar: BJP MP from Bhubaneswar Aparajita Sarangi recently met Defence Minister Rajnath Singh with a request him to allow construction of a drain inside 120 Infantry Battalion in the Odisha capital.

In a tweet, the MP later said that the drain has been a long-pending demand of the residents of Nayapalli, which remains flooded with rainwater during monsoon.

In 2018, Nayapalli area had witnessed a state of emergency with vehicles submerged in waist-deep rainwaters in front of ISKON temple here. Residents had attributed the waterlogging menace to water being drained from the temple. Their longstanding demand for construction of a separate drainage system for Nayapalli, IRC Village, Rental  Colony and other areas is yet to be fulfilled.

Many feel that the proposed drain through 120 Infantry Battalion will resolve the flooding issue.
