Kashmir will tackle floods with hi-tech dewatering pump stations

The Jammu and Kashmir administration is working to upgrade 49 dewatering pump stations which were damaged during the devastating 2014 floods which caused widespread damage in Kashmir valley. Now, the government has initiated work on upgrading the dewatering pump stations across Srinagar with the help of World Bank. JandK Economic Reconstruction Agency (ERA) is undertaking the project at the cost of Rs 103 crore. The pumping stations are being installed above flood level so that in future when flood hits, these pumping stations will help dewatering the affected areas. Since the pumping stations will have latest technology, they will work automatically, but will have control rooms and backup control rooms in order to operate them from safe places. Locals expressed happiness over the project as they have faced problems when incessant rainfall led to waterlogging in their areas.

Kamala Harris' uncle spoke to Hindustan Times' Rezaul Laskar about his niece's selection as the Vice Presidential candidate by US President-hopeful Joe Biden. A day earlier, Biden, the Democratic candidate taking on incumbent President Donald Trump in the polls in November, announced that Harris, an American of Indian and Jamaican descent, would be his 'running mate'. Gopalan Balachandran said that he sent his niece a congratulatory message saying her mother Shyamala would be proud of her. He also spoke about her ideology, political views and individual strengths. Balachandran spoke on Kamala's Indian roots, saying that she drew inspiration from her mother. He added that one of her strong suits is standing her ground and being able to convince her opponents to join her side. Kamala likes India but that doesn't mean that she'll give a 'free pass' to everything that the country does, he said. Harris hasn't shied away from expressing her opinion on India's domestic issues like the contentious Citizenship (Amendment) Act, and the situation in Jammu and Kashmir. The United States of America will vote on November 3 in the backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic and widespread anti-discrimination protests. The US is the worst-hit country by the pandemic so far with over 50 lakh cases and 1.62 lakh deaths.
