New Delhi, July 13 (ANI): Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Tuesday is reported to have pulled up the city's civic agencies over the rain-related traffic chaos and water-logging.

The city has found itself marooned in endless traffic jams and knee-deep water, and Dikshit has demanded that the roads be repaired immediately.

"It is true there is a lot of rubble (malba) lying around...We had announced August 10 as the deadline for clearing the rubble, let that date come," Dikshit said of the rubble that has collected from works related to the forthcoming Commonwealth Games.

Dikshit met with civic authorities and reprimanded them for the chaos on the capital's roads.

She is spending Tuesday surveying Delhi's roads with a team of officials to identify problem areas.

One of the main causes of the water-logging is that year after year, drains are not cleaned in time, despite crores allegedly being spent on the exercise. The chief minster asked for the drainage system to be cleared and damaged roads to be repaired.

In addition to Delhi's discomfort, what's worrying the government is that the Commonwealth Games are just two months away. (ANI)
