Lalitpur, July 16

Incessant rainfall has affected life in parts of Lalitpur as transportation has come to a grinding halt in three rural municipalities due to landslides in different areas.

All schools have been shut down with the obstruction of transportation due to rain-triggered landslides. Hundreds of houses have been inundated in Lalitpur Metropolitan City-28 when the flood-fed Karmanasha rivulet entered into human settlement.

Likewise, more than 400 houses located near Gwarko-based Kist Hospital have been waterlogged, affecting life of 1,200 people.

Mahalaxmi municipality-4 chair Laxman Rokka shared that the obstruction to the water flow under the river linking Lalitpur and Mahalaxmi municipality caused inundation in the human settlement. No human loss has been reported in Godavari Municipality, but 12 households of ward 7 in Devichaur have been displaced due to landslides.

Locals said the excessive use of bulldozers in course of the construction of roads along the forest area triggered a bigger loss in southern Lalitpur.
