Flood in Guwahati

While flood in Dhemaji is no longer a news, with one day’s rain in Guwahati created a flood like situation can be worthy of news. We have received few photos uploaded by Mr. Jivan HKakoti from Guwahati who has put his bed on three bricks to raise height so that it does not get submerged in flood water right in the heart of Guwahati City, gateway to North East India.

Incidentally, Globe trotting Assam Health Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma is the minister for Development of Guwahati. While he has been busy collecting accolades in USA with family, he has forgotten about citizen of Guwahati who suffers flood like situation in single days rain as if they are living in Dhemaji, the flood capital of India!

Here are few pictures Mr. Jivan has uploaded in twitter of his room and his locality Tarun Nagar, Guwahati

We hope, GMDA authorities as well as Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma would find out some time to pay attention to the plight of citizens of Guwahati. At least that should be expected from an intelligent and ambitious politician like Himanta Biswa Sarma specially when election is nearing in Assam.

We thank you Mr. Jivan Hkakoti for uploading the photos.
