AN ONGOING STRUGGLE

Rain or shine, there seems to be water everywhere in the port city -- be it in front of hospitals, on roads or underneath flyovers. Due to an ongoing “development work” and a lack of proper drainage system, many of the areas remain waterlogged. In addition, dilapidated conditions of many roads continue to add to the residents' miseries. A man drains out water from the main gate of Chittagong Medical College Hospital yesterday.
