The Maharashtra government is to restore all the rain battered roads in Nagpur at a cost of Rs 100 crore. Nagpur roads were ravaged by rains that lashed the city since the past month. If needed, more funds would be sanctioned, said the State Employment Guarantee Scheme Minister Nitin Raut.
He said that the North Nagpur areas had turned like a war zone on July 31 when the rain-fury left the rivers and 'Nallahs' flooded causing destruction of houses along the shores, destroying roads and basic amenities.
As a permanent solution, The State government has made a provision of Rs 500 crore to stop flooding of the rivers and 'nallahs' for construction of walls along the rivers and other sources of water, the Minister said.
