Human chain over rehab of flood victims

By Correspondent

SILAPATHAR, Oct 23 � The All Assam Students� Union (AASU), Dhemaji district committee has decided to organise a human chain on October 28 at Gainadi, demanding permanent solution to the flood problems and compensation and rehabilitation of the flood-affected families.

The district committee stated that several organisations of the district along with AASU have been demanding compensation and rehabilitation of the flood-affected families but to no avail. The flood on August 15, caused by the Gai river, affected more than 20,000 people of 3,000 families under Sissi revenue block in Dhemaji district. The flood-waters of the Gai river destroyed houses, cultivable land, livestock and paddy fields.

Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi has declared a package of Rs 100 crore for the rehabilitation of the flood-affected families. But the flood-affected families of Dhemaji district have not realised any financial help from the government even after three moths of the announcement of the package.

The Dhemaji District Students� Union has also demanded reconstruction of the damaged roads along with rural roads for better communication and improvement of the educational environment in the area.

The president, Chitra Ranjan Basumatary and secretary, Jyotish Konah have expressed grave concern that the MLAs of Jonai and Dhemaji constituencies in Dhemaji district have not raised the issue of floods in the Assembly. The MLAs of Jonai and Dhemaji have totally failed to raise the issues in the Assembly, they said.

The Dhemaji District Students� Union reiterated that if the MLAs have any responsibilities towards their constituencies, they should raise the problems of floods in the greater interest of Dhemaji district.

The student organisation has appealed to all sections of people to join the human chain programme for its success.
