Kamrup: The flood condition in Assam has worsened further, affecting over 24 lakh people across 30 districts as major rivers breach the danger mark. The inundation has brought the total death toll to 79.
According to the Assam State Disaster Management Authority (ASDMA), a total of 24,20,722 people have been wedged across 30 districts. The floods have also besieged 63,490.97 hectares of cropland, causing significant damage to the agricultural sector.
Through a visit to the Hatishila and Chandrapur areas in Kamrup district, it was witnessed that many people are severely affected. Their homes are waterlogged, and many have been moved, in search of refuge in relief camps. Inhabitants have conveyed their frustration, asserting that they have not received any help from the administration or local MLA, Atul Bora, who’s Constituency 52 - Dispur consist of Hatishila and Chandrapur Bagicha.
One of the resident defined the terrible conditions: "On one side, there is water; on the other side highway. We are residing in relief camps along the road. There is no clean water to drink, no food. I have little children. It’s a very worst circumstances. We lost our cropland besides. The administration should help us."
The resolution for administrative involvement and support is marked as the affected communities struggle to survive with the consequences of the floods. The inhabitants of Hatishila and Chandrapur are calling for instant support to address the lack of basic requirements such as food and clean drinking water.
The flood has not only exiled thousands but also destroyed livelihoods. Many residents are reliant on on farming, and the inundation of cropland has left them with no means to earn a living. The lack of incomes in relief camps has further worsened the situation, making it challenging for families to endure themselves.
Exertions by the administration have been condemned as insufficient. Residents claim that despite the severity of the situation, relief measures have been slow and insufficient. There are calls for a more coordinated and effective response from both state and local authorities to ensure that aid reaches those in need promptly.
MLA Atul Bora has come under fire from his constituents, who feel abandoned in their time of need. The lack of communication and support from elected officials has added to the frustration and despair of the affected communities. Bora's absence and the perceived inaction have led to mounting anger among the residents, who are demanding accountability and immediate assistance.
The ASDMA has reported that numerous embankments, roads, bridges, and other infrastructure have been damaged, complicating relief efforts. The transportation of relief materials has been hampered, leaving many areas inaccessible and further isolating the affected populations.
The flood situation has also raised concerns about the preparedness and response mechanisms in place for such natural disasters. There is a growing need for improved infrastructure, better disaster management plans, and proactive measures to mitigate the impact of floods in Assam. Long-term solutions such as building stronger embankments, improving drainage systems, and ensuring sustainable development practices are essential to prevent such widespread devastation in the future.
In the short term, the focus remains on providing immediate relief to those affected. Non-governmental organizations and volunteer groups have stepped in to provide some assistance, but the scale of the disaster requires a more robust and coordinated effort. There is an urgent need for food, clean water, medical supplies, and temporary shelter for the displaced.
The situation in Hatishila and Chandrapur serves as a stark reminder of the vulnerability of Assam's communities to natural disasters. The affected residents are calling for solidarity and support from the wider community and authorities. As the floodwaters continue to rise, the resilience and spirit of the people of Assam are being tested, but their calls for help cannot be ignored.
In conclusion, the flood situation in Assam is a severe humanitarian crisis affecting millions. Immediate and effective action is necessary to provide relief and support to the affected communities. The administration must step up its efforts to ensure that aid reaches those in need and to implement long-term measures to prevent such disasters in the future. The people of Hatishila and Chandrapur, along with the rest of Assam, need immediate help and a commitment to building a safer and more resilient future.
