IMPHAL, April 26 - People affected by torrential rains in Manipur in the last 10 days are sore over the alleged sloth in official response to their plight as the government awaits district collectors� reports before disbursing relief.
The State Cabinet emergency meeting on Monday decided the relief would be given as soon as comprehensive reports are received from the district collectors.
Chief Secretary O Nabakishore confirmed that most collectors have collated reports on the extent of damages in their districts.
Meanwhile, traffic on the Imphal-Jiribam National Highway-37 was disrupted after multiple landslides in Tamenglong district. Hundreds of buses, trucks and private vehicles were stranded and causing hardships to travellers.
Officials said they feared that traffic on the National Highway-2 may also be affected soon, cutting off supply routes to Manipur. Already, the prices of consumer items in Manipur have gone up. � PTI
