"In past also we have suffered heavy damages due to the landslides but the authorities have never come up with a solution to this problem," said Rfiq.
Locals said that the unprecedented heavy downpour continuing for the second day today hundreds of people have abandoned their homes as the flood like situation turned grim in the district on Sunday.
