Once again heavy rain in Dimapur flooded low lying areas forcing people to come out of their home in the middle of the night. The monsoon has just begun and Dimapurians are going to witness such heavy rains again and again and many families would be forced to spend their days and night out of their homes. The problem lies in lack of planning and encroachment over drains and nullahs which has blocked free flow of water. The successive governments have failed to take notice of people’s woes over the past more than a decade and continue to ignore these problems. Only those who suffer from overflooding of waters and submerged houses know, what problems they are facing. The government of the day needs to do something for people residing in low lying areas.
