Ludhiana, July 11:

Soon after a breach was reported at the banks of buddha nullah on Tajpur road (near city bus workshop) on Monday night, quick response by Municipal Corporation (MC) teams controlled the situation immediately.

Deployed to keep a vigil alongside the nullah on night duty, teams immediately responded and commenced operations to plug the breach. Senior MC officials led the operation from the forefront and plugged the breach in a short period.

MC Commissioner Dr Shena Aggarwal along with other civic body officials also took stock of the situation. 

Dr Aggarwal stated that the situation is under control. The MC is keeping a 24*7 vigil around buddha nullah and the breach was reported at around 10:30pm on Monday night. It was due to excessive flow of water from the upstream areas. 

As the civic body was prepared to tackle the situation, teams led by senior officials reached the spot and plugged the breach in a short period using sand bags, earth movers (JCB machines) etc. The civic body teams remained undeterred despite the challenging situation.

Dr Aggarwal stated that all efforts are being made to avoid water logging in the surrounding areas of buddha nullah and the civic body is keeping a 24*7 vigil around the nullah. Banks of the nullah are also being strengthened. Over 200 employees remain deputed in the areas surrounding the nullah during night hours too. Poclain and JCB machines have also been deployed for cleaning the nullah regularly. 

Pumps have been installed to pump out accumulated water from the surrounding areas, wherever required and fogging is also being done in the areas falling under the vicinity of nullah to save the residents from vector borne diseases.

Dr Aggarwal stated that the civic body is committed to take strong measures to tackle any situation. Residents can contact the 24*7 flood control room of MC (0161-2749120) in case of any emergency.
