Assam floods: 200 families affected, crops destroyed

Guwahati: Normal life has been disrupted in Assam's Dhemaji district due to heavy rains in the last few days. More than 200 families in villages are affected by this flood. Several hectares of cropland and roads under Jhiri and Telam gram panchayats have been submerged. Many villagers have been forced to leave their homes and take shelter in safe places. In fact, due to the rains in Assam since yesterday, there has been a flood situation.

Earlier in July, the situation had become serious due to the devastating floods in Assam. Almost every year, floods wreak havoc in Assam three-four times. According to the state government website, the average annual loss from this disaster is Rs 200 crore. Union Home Minister Amit Shah, who visited Assam on October 7, had asked the Assam government to come up with a long-term plan to save the northeastern state from floods for decades so that the state could develop as much as possible.

Home Minister Amit Shah had said that flood protection is an important requirement for the development of the state and attracting significant private investment. The state government should go beyond short-term plans and prepare a long-term plan, which will provide protection from floods in the coming decades.
