Bhubaneswar: A fissure in the canal embankment flooded the Garage Chhak area in capital tossing normal life out of gear in the area today.
As indicated by sources, the ‘Kedargouri’ apartment square has been marooned while flooding water from the waterway has overflowed the low lying regions near-by.
Taking after the episode, local MLA and Tourism minister Ashok Kumar Panda and the Mayor of Bhubaneswar Municipality Corporation (BMC) Ananta Narayan Jena raced to the spot to take load of the situation.
“Because of excess water, the retaining wall of the canal has given way. Currently, we have diverted the water to drain no 10. Once the water is diverted, we will construct the retaining wall,” Jena said.
