AGARTALA, June 19 - The overall flood situation in Tripura has improved with all the major rivers flowing below the danger level, officials said.

�Work for the distribution of relief materials, food and medicines is in full swing. We are keeping a close watch on the situation,� D Darlong, District Magistrate of Unakoti, which is the worst-affected, said over phone from Kailashahar. Over 72,000 people are still staying in relief camps in Unakoti district, he said.

Chief Public Relations Officer of the Northeast Frontier Railway, PJ Sharma said train services have been restored in the Lumding-Badarpur hill section, but some portions of the railway track are still under flood water between Badarpur-Silchar and Manu-Ambassa-Agartala, affecting passenger train services.

The Badarpur-Silchar section in Assam and the Manu-Ambassa-Agartala section in Tripura have remained non-operational since June 13 due to landslips at several locations, he said.

Three pairs of passenger trains � the Agartala-Silchar, Silchar-Dharmanagar and Agartala-Dharmanagar � could not run in the two sections due to the landslips caused by flood, Sharma said. � PTI
