Bengaluru: The heavy rainfall in Karnataka’s Bengaluru has caused a host of problems to the residents. The flood water which has inundated a large part of the city affected people from all tiers of society.
The rainwater even submerged the high-end residential areas that includes Epsilon. Big business tycoons like Wipro chairman Rishad Premji and Britannia CEO Varun Berry live in the high-gated community.
Regardless of all the luxuries in their homes, even the rich are dealing with power cuts and no water supply.
Several videos have been surfaced on the internet showing the big villas inundated in knee-deep water. A video showed that the luxurious cars were rotting standing in the water as the residents vacated their homes on tractors.
