“Heavy rains in Gurgaon, please be advised. Be patient and maintain lane discipline, we are on the job to facilitate your movement,” the Gurgaon police tweeted, warning that visibility is low.

Many people travel between Delhi and Gurgaon for work and there are fears of a repeat of  last month’s flooding on the National Highway-8 that left thousands of commuters stranded.

“Rain or no rain… Delhi to Gurgaon roads are always jammed,” Priyanka Thakkar tweeted.
