Like most years, this time, too, monsoon is playing with the emotions of Mumbaikars, leading to submerged cars and general chaos in the city. But the people of this city are just too strong to be flustered by any natural calamity and make grim jokes about what it is like to live there.
While politician Vinod Tawde recently commented there is no waterlogging situation in Mumbai, his fellow party member, Sambit Patra, was captured struggling in knee-deep rainwater on the streets of the maximum city. In a photo released by a news agency, Patra can be seen going to the party office in Dadra East for a meeting. He was being accompanied by his party's Maharashtra state spokesperson Keshav Upadhye.
This picture of Patra, struggling in the waterlogged streets of Mumbai, is now viral on social media. While Tweeple can't stop taking potshots at him, some are even questioning the state of the 'smart city' that was promised to citizens. Take a look at a few reactions that Patra's recent photo has generated among Netizens.
