On July 29, people again faced gridlocked traffic. In some parts, the backlog of the jams was nearly 15 km long.
The anger and misery of commuters was reflected in hundreds of tweets.
The situation was so bad that Gurgaon Police asked people from Delhi – many of whom work in Gurgaon – to stay away.
According to Gurgaon Deputy Commissioner TL Satyaprakash, “there were a couple to blunders we did…we apologise to whoever suffered and sincerely regret the inconvenience.”
Gurgaon, which is home to scores of top multinational companies, expensive condominiums, a world-class golf course, top hospitals and gleaming shopping malls, completely lacks efficient drainage and infrastructure to handle such a situation.
