Flood wreaks havoc in Raha

DIBYA J BORTHAKUR, RAHA: Flood waters have been wreaking no less havoc in Raha along with other parts of the state. At least 20 villages in the revenue circle have come under the surging waters of the Borpani river. The worst- affected villages include Jarduba, Basbatamari, No 1 Sangajan, Misamari, No 2 Misamari , Barunguri, Falihamari, Rampur Basti , Garubandha, Choraijuria---now reeling under flood. But the authorities have yet to blink. The district administration has yet to help the marooned people tide over the situation. Nobody is there to launch relief and rescue operation. Surging flood waters have disrupted surface communication in many places causing much inconvenience for the local residents. Rice crops, sugarcane and jute worth lakhs of rupees have been ravaged by the flood wave that is likely to stay even by the next week.
