MP: Karbala Bridge submerged due to heavy rains in Sehore

Sehore: Normal life has been affected in Sehore, as the torrential rain has battered Madhya Pradesh, submerging the Karbala bridge.

Narmada river is flowing above the danger mark due to intermittent heavy rains since last two weeks and water inflow from dams in western Madhya Pradesh.

A few days back, due to heavy rainfall, Rajghat bridge also got submerged in Barwani leaving commuters stranded for few hours.

Not only that, scores of people affected by the Sardar Sarovar dam project on river Narmada are holding indefinite agitation under the banner of Narmada Bachao Andolan (NBA).

The agitated people are demanding complete rehabilitation before submergence as Gujarat government is likely to fill up the reservoir on Sardar Sarovar dam up to the maximum limit of 138.68 metres, which will mean submergence in a huge
portion of the affected area.

The agitated protesters are demanding that the gates of the Sardar Sarovar dam should be opened so the water can flow out and the submergence can be avoided.
