Meanwhile the first meeting of the state disaster management authority chaired by Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Saturday sanctioned Rs 100 crore and Rs two crore each to the two worst affected Dhemaji and Lakhimpur districts for rehabilitation measures.

Opposition AGP leaders and former Union water resources minister Bijoya Chakravartty is camping in the district to take stock of the flood affected people. Talking to reporters, she blamed both NEEPCO and the Assam Government for this situation.
