Madhya Pradesh has been receiving heavy rainfall for the last few days. In a recent report, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) reportedly stated that this rainfall is being caused due to a turf line that is coming from Jaipur and Gwalior and because of it, circulation has been created over the Bay of Bengal sea. This is leading to rainfall in the eastern parts of the state rather than the western parts. “Also, the frequency will increase in the coming days. So, heavy rain activity is expected in the coming days. It will remain for the coming 2-3 days," said the department.
