Schools shut down, transport obstructed in south Lalitpur

LAITPUR: Incessant rainfall has affected normal life in Lalitpur. Transportation has come to a grinding halt in three rural municipalities of south Lalitpur due to landslide in different areas.

All schools here have been shut down with the obstruction of transportation due to rain-triggered landslides.

Hundreds of houses have been inundated in Lalitpur Metropolis-28 when the flood-fed Karmanasha rivulet entered into human settlement.

Likewise, more than 400 houses located nearby Gwarko Kist Hospital in Lalitpur have been waterlogged, affecting normal life of 1,200 people, shared Mahalaxmi ward-4 chair Laxman Rokka.

The obstruction to the water flow under the river linking Lalitpur and Mahalaxmi municipality caused inundation in the human settlement, he added.

No human loss has been reported in Godavari municipality but 12 households of ward-7 Devichaur have been rendered displaced due to landslide.

Locals said the excessive use of dozers in course of the construction of roads along the forest area triggered bigger loss in south Lalitpur.
