It may be mentioned that the heir of yesterday destroyed the city of Patiala. Waris was such that there was water in every corner of every city. Government vehicles and cars of the secretariat were stuck in the water two by two. The volunteer members appointed by the administration were nowhere to be seen. It has been observed that a slight rain outside the DC office causes the water to stand up to such an extent that the staff has to resort to boarding their vehicles as the area is lower than the roads which reduces the flow of water.
