In a heart-wrenching turn of events, Telangana experienced yet another day of relentless heavy rains on Thursday, marking the third consecutive day of suffering. The torrential downpour wreaked havoc in various areas of Hyderabad, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake. Waterlogging and traffic congestion paralyzed the city, transforming its bustling streets into chaotic and impassable rivers.

As the rains continued to pour, low-lying regions across the state faced an even more dire fate as they became inundated, leaving countless families displaced and struggling to find shelter and safety. The sorrowful scenes of loss and displacement unfolded before the eyes of the beleaguered citizens, who could only watch as their beloved homes and communities were swallowed by the unforgiving floods.

In a desperate bid to respond to this calamity, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao took decisive action. He issued a heartrending directive to Chief Secretary A Santhi Kumari, urging her to declare holidays for all educational institutions and government offices within the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) on Friday and Saturday, the 21st and 22nd of July. The decision was made to safeguard lives and prevent further tragedies amid the relentless rainfall.

Amid the catastrophe, CM K Chandrashekhar Rao emphasized that essential services such as medical facilities and milk supply would strive to continue uninterrupted, providing a glimmer of hope in the midst of darkness. However, the harsh reality of the situation meant that countless families were left struggling, grappling with uncertainty and fear.
As the rains persisted relentlessly, the Assistant Commissioner of Hyderabad Traffic Police, Raju K P V, took to social media with a heartrending plea. He urged both government employees and private sector workers to refrain from commuting unless faced with a dire emergency. The city was teetering on the edge as it remained under an orange alert due to the incessant rainfall, with the potential for further devastation looming ominously.

The Meteorological Centre of the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) in Hyderabad delivered grim news. It forecasted extremely heavy rainfall in the districts of Komaram Bheem Asifabad, Mancherial, Jayashankar Bhupalapally, Mulugu, and Bhadradri Kothagudem on July 21st, adding to the unyielding tragedy that had befallen Telangana.

Earlier, the Met Centre had issued a dreaded red alert, warning of heavy to very heavy rain, with the frightening possibility of extremely heavy rain in the districts of Komaram Bheem Asifabad, Mancherial, Jayashankar Bhupalapally, and Mahabubnagar on the sorrowful Thursday. The people of Telangana were left to face these grim prospects with bravery and unity, hoping for a glimmer of relief amidst the torrential downpour of sorrow.
