Baba Bhide bridge under water
For years, Punekars have been predicting that if Baba Bhide bridge goes under water, it will rain. Due to incessant rains in Pune for the last three days, Khadakwasla dam is 100 percent full. A handful of water from the dam was released into the river. Therefore, like every year, this time too, the crowded bridge has gone under water. It is believed that the water problem in Pune was solved when the Bhide bridge went under water. The traffic on this bridge has been closed for a few days and the administration has also appealed to the people of Pune not to travel through the river bed.

Due to incessant rains in Pune, 100 per cent water has been stored in Khadakwasla dam. The water was discharged from midnight considering more rain forecast. Initially about 1000 cusecs of water was being released. Now we have increased the discharge of 3424 cusec from the dam drain from 12 noon yesterday to exactly 5992 cusec. Therefore, the surrounding villages have been alerted. A red alert has been issued in Pune for the next two days. So it is going to rain very hard for two days.

So far in Pune, the crop has been planted on 30 per cent of the area. This includes paddy and other crops. The crop has been planted on 46000 hectares. If the rains continue like this, the amount of crop cultivation will increase. Baliraja is happy that many crops have received good rainfall.
