OK. BUT TELL ME ONE THING, WHAT DO KOLKATANS NEED FIRSTLY? A BOAT WITH LIFE JACKETS HANGING IN PARK CIRCUS CROSSING WHERE FLOODS(/WATER LOGGING) HAPPEN SELDOM OR A BROCHURE HAVING ALL THE INFORMATION & PHONE NUMBERS OF KMC OFFICIAL WHOM YOU CAN DIRECTLY CONTACT IN YOUR NEEDS. AND MOREOVER IF YOUR WARD IS WATER-LOGGED, IT’S THE KMC PEOPLE WHO WILL RESCUE YOU NOT THE AIRCEL.
