Jonai cut off, faces scarcity of essential items

By Correspondent

JONAI, Sept 27 � Though overall flood situation in Dhemaji district improved today with cessation of rain-related activities, scarcity of essential items has started creating problems for the people of Jonai subdivision as the road link at Gainadi portion is still snapped.

Jonai subdivision and parts of Arunachal Pradesh is still cut off from the rest of the country after the second wave of floods breached the portion of the NH on September 24 last. The authority yesterday restored the disrupted portion at Samarajan but it is yet to restore the breached NH at Gainadi.

Sources from Jonai subdivisional administration today said that regular supply of food items and other essential commodities to Jonai subdivision has come to a screeching halt.

Five SK oil-filled tankers supplied under PDS quota for Jonai subdivision have been stranded across the Gainadi, waiting for alternative measure for unloading.

Earlier too, on August 15 last, the subdivision and neighbouring Arunachal districts remained cut off for 25 days that resulted in acute shortages of food and petroleum products.

Sources said, there was no adequate foodstuff stocked in Dhemaji FCI godowns. A part of PDS/TPDS items against Dhemaji and Jonai subdivisions for August have been lifted from Dibrugarh across the Brahmaputra through ferry routes. But a bulk of rice, sugar supplied under AAY and Mukhya Mantrir Anna Suraksha Yojna for this month is yet to be lifted.
