Incessant rainfall in Uttar Pradesh’s Moradabad district has given rise to a flood-like situation in the district, causing severe disruptions to routine life.
As per locals, children are not able to attend school, as connectivity has taken a hit due to the torrential downpour.
“It’s been over 15 days of the flooding for the sixth consecutive year. It’s very difficult for us and our children. We can’t take them to school and we can’t even step outside to get medicines. We are getting no help from anywhere,” another local told agencies.
60 people have died and 53 others injured in rain-related incidents in 35 districts of Uttar Pradesh, in merely a week’s time.
Casualties were reported after rain wreaked havoc in different parts of the state, since Thursday.
