Flood in Assam: Silchar is flooding in search of water

Silchar: On the fourth day of the Flood, the Silchar people truly remember the famous couplet “Drink water everywhere, not everywhere.” The situation was exacerbated on Wednesday as fresh areas such as Ramnagar ISBT were submerged. This alternative route via Ramnagar ISBT is the only way to travel from the town to Karimganj, Hailakandi and Guwahati, as the town’s arterial roads are already heavily flooded and vehicles are impassable. It was a road. Inundation of the Ramnagar area effectively means that the town is virtually inundated.

The sleepless night was a new day with news that a corpse was found on Swamiji Road in the Itkuhora area. 51-year-old Sunil Deb was hit by a flood. NDRF later recovered the body.

During that time, several outbreaks of dacoity were reported from various parts of the town. The Madharbond people claimed that the group’s dacoity was seen on three boats carrying a large number of motorcycles on the other side of the river. Meanwhile, Nabamita Bhattacharya in the Bilper area said a group of robbers tried to enter their house late Tuesday night.

Silchar is moving rapidly towards a deadly disaster. People’s anger and frustration with the administration as a whole, especially with public representatives, was on the verge of a rapid explosion. The administrator posted a series of helpline numbers, but all calls are unattended. There was no electricity for two days and people couldn’t charge their cell phones. The mobile connection was unusually unstable.

In a video message on Tuesday, Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Keerthi Jalli demanded that people not panic and ensured that the bailout would soon be distrusted. However, people from almost every corner of the town claimed that even packaged drinking water was not provided by the government. In fact, drinking water shortages are the most popular in towns that have been submerged for the past four days.
