Rajnath Singh coming on Oct 1

Union home minister Rajnath Singh would be on a stock taking to the flood hit areas of Goalpara and Kamrup district along with South Garo hills in Meghalaya on October 1.

The flood waters in these two districts continue to recede following the halt of rains during the last couple of days. Singh has already sent Kiren Rijiju who wrapped up his aerial survey on Saturday afternoon.

The Centre had already provided some immediate relief in the form of ex gratia to the next of kin of those who have died in the floods. The next of kin of every person who died in the floods would get Rs 3.5 lakh each.
