GUWAHATI, July 22 � A 17-member team of Save Guwahati Build Guwahati � a city-based organisation � visited the flood-affected Bhomoraguri village of Hajo recently and distributed relief material among the 350 families of the village.
According to a statement from the NGO, the team led by SGBG president Dhiren Baruah and vice-president Ajai Dutta in association with the local Circle Office distributed from two to eight kgs of flat rice (chira) and jaggery to each family, medicines, chadar mekhela, children�s clothes, etc., among the villagers.
�We have come to know that the area where flood relief material was distributed by SGBG is once again submerged in flood water,� Dhiren Baruah said. The NGO also asked the State government and other political parties to forget their differences and work together to help the flood-affected people of the State.
�We saw the condition of only a small portion of flood-affected areas of the State. The untold miseries of thousands of flood-hit families are beyond explanation. Thus we ask all the political parties, social and non-governmental organizations, etc., to work together to help the marooned people,� Baruah added.
The SGBG also appealed the legislators, government and non-government officials workers, etc., to contribute their one day�s salary to the Chief Minister�s Relief Fund so that it can reach the flood-affected people.
�Such appeal can also be made in the ongoing session of the State Legislative Assembly,� Baruah added.
The organisation also plans to visit other flood-affected places of the State as and when time permits. It may be mentioned that the SGBG has always been in the forefront while taking up social issues.
