During the celebration of election outcomes in three key states, Angkita Dutta, former leader of Assam Pradesh Youth Congress, voiced inquiries on Sunday regarding the persistent waterlogging problem experienced by Guwahati residents under the governance of the BJP-led Assam government.
Slamming the state government, Dutta emphasized that despite having a triple engine in the state, the challenges faced by citizens dealing with waterlogging persist without resolution.
On Saturday, Angkita Dutta posted on X sharing images illustrating a girl navigating a waterlogged section in Rukmini Gaon on a motorcycle to reach a bus on the main road.
Continuing yesterday’s thread, the situation today. We are waiting with bated breath about the result of five states but what’s the point. Here in Assam, we have triple engine Sarkar, Center, State and even GMC but citizens condition still the same. @TheAshokSinghal… https://t.co/aX8pFXnF00 pic.twitter.com/EjL4ub6zMg

With no response from the authorities, the ex-youth leader posted images on Sunday depicting the unaddressed waterlogged area, raising questions about the efficacy of the triple engine in Assam.
Persistent waterlogging remains a longstanding concern for Guwahati residents, with even brief rainfall causing challenges for both commuters and residents. Rukmini Gaon stands out as one of the most severely affected areas by waterlogging in Guwahati.
