Sadhotra, Rana interact with flood-hit in Reasi, assure all help

Minister for Planning and Development Ajay Sadhotra and National Conference provincial president for the Jammu region Devender Singh Rana today reassured the flood-hit people of all possible help, saying the government is alive to their problems and taking all measures to mitigate these.

Interacting with affected people at Reasi, after carrying out an aerial survey of the flood and landslide-hit areas across the Pir Panjal Range and Reasi and Udhampur districts, especially Mahore and Panchari, Sadhotra referred to the colossal damage caused to life, property, crops, infrastructure and utility services. He said a massive rehabilitation programme had become imperative.

“As of now, the priority is to save people and ensure evacuation of marooned sufferers on an immediate basis,” Sadhotra said, adding that mega operations by multiple agencies are currently going on across the state.

He said putting back life on tracks was being given focus, with Chief Minister Omar Abdullah himself monitoring the rescue and relief measures.

He said health and hygiene was another challenge that was being addressed on an urgent basis to avert diseases.

Rana exhorted the people to be united and meet the challenge by rising above party politics.

“The catastrophe has shaken the state and we have to face it unitedly and collectively,” he said.

The NC provincial president told the party workers and functionaries to convert all units at the grass-roots level into relief and rescue centres and reach out to the needy and provide all necessary assistance. He said the people and the administration had to work in tandem to meet the situation.

Giving an overview of the rescue and relief operations undertaken so far, Rana stressed the need for strengthening the hands of Chief Minister Omar Abdullah who is monitoring the situation and ensuring the rescue of people from marooned areas.

He said all resources were required to be pooled to overcome the challenge posed by the natural calamity.
