Talking to reporters in Guwahati on Monday, Red horns division, GOC major General RN Nair said that the district administration put them on alert and that they jumped in relief efforts. According to Nair, a section of the people is reluctant to leave their villages. Nair said that they are still continuing it by dropping food packets and providing water to the needy.
Incessant rains triggered flood in the state submerging thousands of villages and forcing thousands of people to abandon their homes in search of higher ground.
