Yet again, floods have caused death and destruction across Assam. A hundred lives have been lost, more than two million homes came under water, scores of houses have been swept away, and hundreds of cattle have perished. We saw the Prime Minister and Congress president touring parts of Assam, looking at the havoc below from the skies.
We have heard them, as also Assam’s Chief Minister, talk of providing assistance to those affected. We have heard them say adequate measures will be taken to control the problem of floods in Assam.
