MCGM is all set for monsoons – voiced a confident MCGM Commissioner Swadheen Khatriya while speaking to the press at the civic headquarters in South Mumbai. Here is a report. Like every year even this year the MCGM has spent Crores of Rupees on pre monsoon works that ranges from cleaning gutters, drains and nullahs to filling potholes. According to the MCGM Commissioner, the civic administration is all set for monsoons and in case if need they will take support from the State Meteorological Dept, Airforce, Navy, SRPF and Fire Brigade. He said that even at places like Haji Ali and Irla Naka that are vulnerable to flooding, the MCGM is going to use sea gates pumping system to divert water to the sea. Besides this the MCGM has also sent notices of evacuation to those living in unsafe buildings in Saki Naka, Kurla and other places, specifically those living on hills. This year an alert has also been sounded of a cyclone hitting the city on days when it pours heavily. However the MCGM Commissioner has appealed Mumbaikars to not believe in hear say or rumours and only trust on statements released by the State Meteorological Dept.
