AGARTALA, June 14 (TIWN): Law Minister Ratan Lal Nath on Thursday announced after the cabinet meeting, such a dangerous and deadly food state Tripura has not experienced in recent times.“Many houses have been collapsed and rescue operations are under process. Three persons have died in past 2 days. One died at khowai and two at South Tripura”, the Minister said. “Following the deadly flood, today in the cabinet meeting, revenue dept, health dept, food dept have told the state govt about the seriousness of the conditions and state govt has taken certain decisions to tackle the situation”, Ratan Lal Nath told media. Cabinet has decided to give priority to the ‘rescue’ operation, ’relief’, ‘health’ and then to measure the ‘damage’.“First we need to save the people and then damage repairing issues will come. Right now Manu river’s water flowing is 23.90 metre. Earlier the water level was much above than the danger level i.e. 24 metre”, he added.

The Minister also added that in Tripura no state govt took such a speedy decision earlier. From Slichar, Ghaziabad and many other paces boats are coming and NDRF team from inside and outside the state have started the rescue operation.

"For food and emergency times helicopter have been kept ready. Except Sepahijala District all Districts have been affected, but most affected District is Unakoti District where 90 relief camps have been set, 13609 families have taken shelter in relief camps and few are yet to be rescued in that District", the Minister said.
