Shashi Tharoor’s house submerged

Sharing a video of his house, he said, “This is the corner right outside my house in Lutyens Delhi. When I woke up in the morning, my entire house was submerged in a foot of water. Everything on the ground, including carpets and furniture, was ruined. Apparently, the drains in the neighbourhood are clogged with rainwater, so there is no way for the water to drain out. They switched off the electricity from 6 am onwards for fear of people getting electrocuted. I informed my Parliament colleagues that I cannot reach there without a boat, but after the water was drained from the roads, I reached Parliament on time.”
