Due to incessant rains coupled with defunct drainage system, several areas of the summer capital were water-logged.
Vehicular movement was hampered in morning due to water-logging at Regal Chowk, Exhibition Crossing, Maulana Azad Road, Residency Road, Samandar Bagh and Munwarabad.
"It is ironical that despite tall claims, authorities have failed to put in place proper dewatering system and efficient drainage facilities," said Abdul Hamid a commuter pointing toward waterlogged road at Regal Chowk.
Meanwhile, Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC) in a statement said started de-watering process in various water-logged areas in the summer capital.
