Severe Downpour Causes Extensive Waterlogging in Jaipur

Heavy rainfall creates havoc in Jaipur

In Jaipur, incessant rainfall disrupted normal life, causing extensive waterlogging in many areas. The heavy downpour persisted since Friday night, with Sikar Road and Jal Mahal surroundings submerged. Low-lying areas and roads like Tonk Road, SMS Hospital premises, B2 Bypass, Jawahar Nagar, and Vidyadhar Nagar also faced water accumulation, and the government hospital’s basement in Gangauri Bazar was flooded. 

This resulted in traffic jams, including on the Jaipur-Ajmer highway. Rajasthan’s Food and Civil Supplies Minister, Pratap Singh Khachariyawas, inspected the rain-hit areas and provided necessary directions to officials. State Disaster Response Force teams were actively involved in rescue and relief operations. 

The weather department predicts heavy rainfall to continue in Jaipur and Bharatpur.
