Assam Flood: Silchar Residents Forced To Drink Flood Water

Guwahati: After one month of continuous rain in Assam, the whole city of Silchar is submerged in water. Houses are washed away, there is no electricity and no food. The worst thing is, that there is no drinking water. People are now using flood water for drinking purposes as they have no alternative solution.

Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma was seen taking stock of the flood-affected areas in Silchar on Sunday. This was his second visit to the area and assured all kinds of possible help to the people of Silchar, News 18 reported.

Talking to CNN NEWS 18, Uttam Ghosh said, “It’s all water in my house, my mother is bed-ridden. We can’t even take her to the hospital as there are no boats as well. Although there are NDRF and SDRF deployed, we have not seen them coming here since last week.”
