The Maharashtra government has ordered an inquiry into the flooding of Vidhan Bhavan here after heavy rains last week.

The inquiry would ascertain loopholes in arrangements for the monsoon session and if problems were deliberately left unattended, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said in the Legislative Assembly here on Monday.

The people affected due to heavy rains in the city would also be compensated, he said.

The city is hosting the monsoon session of the State Legislature, but on Friday both the Assembly and the Council were adjourned for the day, shortly after convening, due to a power blackout caused by rains.

“An inquiry will be done to find out whether there was a deliberate attempt not to fix loopholes, if any, and whether steps were taken to prevent flooding in the Vidhan Bhavan premises,” Mr. Fadnavis said.
