AGP demands Rs 30,000 package

Asom Gana Parishad on Sunday demands a special package of Rs30,000 crore for flood relief in the state. Addressing a press conference in Guwahati, party spokesman Durga Das Boro flayed the government over its negligence in providing relief to the flood victims. The party further demanded that flood and erosion should be declared a national problem. Boro said that Prime Minister and Sonia Gandhi should take steps to provide the latest flood-mitigation technology to the state instead of stock-taking visit.
