Deputy Chief Minister (Dy.CM) and Bengaluru Development Minister D.K. Shivakumar on Thursday went around the city inspecting storm-water drain works in flood prone areas. 

Mr. Shivakumar visited areas at in Yemlur, Sarjapur, Varthur, and others and directed the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) to complete works as soon as possible.

At one place he noticed that the width of a storm-water drain was reduced to 7 metre from 12 metre. He said reduction in size will cause flooding and directed BBMP Chief Commissioner Tushar Giri Nath to build an unlined drain increasing the size. 

At Rainbow Drive Layout in Sarjapur, he listened to the woes of residents who were affected by flooding. He directed the BBMP to complete drain work to avert instances of flooding in the future.
