Flood in Assam: Mizoram, Manipur Help Kacha Flooded

Silchar: Neighbors reached out to the flood-torn Kacha district as Eiswar of the Mizoram Presbyterian Church donated Rs 80,000 to the relief fund. Vice-Chairman Keerthi Jalli received a donation on behalf of the Assam government.

The former Manipur government also sent relief supplies to Cachar. In addition to 102 bags containing 4.5 tonnes of quintal rice, 1 ton of pulse, 30 kg of salt and 5 tons of mustard oil, Manipur Prime Minister Biren Singh dispatched an SDRF team along with a search and rescue facility. Jari was commissioned by her Jiri Bam counterpart at the Assam Manipur border.

But when the townspeople were crying for a bag of drinking water, and when the volunteers arrived at Sirchar with a water consignment, a good Samaritan gesture was initiated by the Central Young Mizo Association.

The Mizo Prime Minister Zoramthanga has ensured that his government will ensure as much assistance as possible to its flood-hit neighbors. “Mizoram will always be with Assam during this ordeal,” Zoramthanga said in a tweet message. Interestingly 11 months ago, Mizo’s armed police fired at Assam’s responders in a land conflict between states, killing Assam’s police personnel and injuring 43 people, including the then Cachar SP. But at the time of the calamity, Mizoram stood up beyond hostility and stood beside his neighbor.
