Even today, we kept our efforts up. In the evening today, I inspected the critical Jatragachi pumping station site (see picture below) and asked for more pumps to be installed: additional three 15 horsepower diesel pumps are put in service within the evening. Although Chinar Park is out of New Town, the road there still has parts under water and I spoke to engineers to take measures.
