Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Tuesday asked government officials to intensify rescue and relief of the people marooned in the second wave of flood and landslide. Gogoi, who is out of station told his officials over telephone that timely steps to evacuate the marooned people must be ensured. The mighty Brahmapurtra continues to flow above the danger level in many places plunging many people in to a era of danger. The government has already prohibited the movement of passenger ferries and boats on the Brahmaputra river. The National Disaster Response Force continues rescue operations in Majuli and in some areas of Sadiya subdivision in Tinsukia district.
