Metro Rail authorities have been held responsible for water-logging at Mirpur.
Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) mayor Atiqul Islam on Tuesday alleged that rain-driven water-logging was created at Mirpur for clogging of drains due to the negligence of the authorities of ongoing Metro Rail Project.
Visiting the dilapidated roads at Kazipara and Shewrapara at Mirpur on Tuesday morning, he directed to clear the drains within the next one month.
However, the Metro Rail authorities said the water-logginng problem at Mirpur had prevailed long before the start of the Metro Rail project.
Waterlogging often creates waist-deep or knee-deep water on roads, lanes and by-lanes at Mirpur.
