On Wednesday, the highest rainfall during the week was recorded in Khanapur taluk (285 mm) followed by Belgaum taluk – 88.2 mm.
There was water logging problems in low lying areas like Gandhinagar, Shivaji Nagar etc. The farmers have taken a sigh of relief as surrounding areas have got average rainfall which is good for the crop. They hope to get more rain fall in the coming days.
Residents and traders of Hatiwal Galli and Kacheri Galli in the busy Shahpur locality of Belgaum on Wednesday staged “rasta roko” for some time to draw the attention of the Belgaum City Corporation authorities to the problems they are facing owing to slow pace of civic work.
According to the residents, corporation workers had dug trenches in the two roads to lay drinking water pipelines three years ago but had not completed the work. The two roads, especially the one in front of Banashankari temple, get flooded during rains, they said.
