Though the onset of monsoon has brought a much-needed relief from the scorching heat, the rains have once again exposed the condition of roads in many cities. One such case was seen in Vadodara where the car of the city mayor was stuck on a road in heavy rainfall. Vadodara in central Gujarat received  115 mm of rainfall in eight hours — from 8 am and 4 pm – on Monday leading to waterlogging and traffic jams in areas like Alkapuri, Sayajigunj, Fatehgunj and Gotri.

While some lambasted the civic bodies in the city and politicians for not doing their job, others took a sarcastic route to roast them. “These are the images of Gujarat’s first ‘Amphibious Car’ demonstrated by Vadodara Mayor herself to the public,” quipped one on Twitter, while another shared it saying “this is perfect example of Karma!”

South Gujarat was put on alert after the region received heavy rainfall on Monday with 12 talukas in six districts — Valsad, Tapi, Surat, Navsari, Dang and Bharuch — recording over 100 mm rainfall in mere four hours. Two persons died in rain-related incidents in Jhagadia taluka of Bharuch district.
