AGARTALA, Aug 12 (TIWN): Chief Minister Manik Sarkar has visited the flood affected areas at Agartala on the 2nd day of flood. PWD & Revenue Minister Badal Choudhury also accompanied Sarkar during his visit at Dasamighat, Chandrapur, Baldakahal, Katakhal areas. On Friday evening a meeting was also held led by the CM at Secretariat. As per eye witness, the condition of relief camps are not at all satisfactory but free flow of central fund has begun to swell over State Finance Dept. already. Moreover, whereas Minister Badal Choudhury was much comfortable with an unbrella and other Ministers, Opposition leaders are roaming without umbrellas but Tripura CM Manik Sarkar has stepped on the mud amid full protection with umbrella and a heavy rain coat. When public are suffering from waist level water, Chief Minister is much careful to dirt his white ‘kurta’ !

Talking to Tripura Urban Development Minister Manik Dey, he mentioned that the border areas especially Katakhal and Baldakhal areas are the highest sufferers. “Common people have helped a lot in the emergency situation. Without everyone’s cooperation the situation would turn more pathehtic”, Manik Dey told TIWN.

 Asking about the oppositions allegation, Dey said, “All political party should jump in the crisis situation for now. Why this crisis situation is happening, whose fault lets discuss it later”. 

“The rain led flood has affected Bangladesh border areas and via Rajghat the water even from Bangladesh is entering”, The Minister said.

On Friday late night, Tripura Revenue Minister Badal Choudhury, Urban Development Minister Manik Dey Mayor Parfullajit Sinha, DGP A K Sukla, DM Millind Ramteke have visited the flood affected areas at Agartala. A record level rain has been experienced from Thursday late-night to Friday led above thousand families affected due to river bank's erosion.

At Agartala including Dasami Ghat and Chandrapur total 2 barrages have been collapsed, whereas above 1500 flood affected families have taken shelter in various schools at Agartala. Three helplines have been announced: 1077 under West DM, 1070 State Govt, 2416045 under Civil Secretariat.

 But Agartala’s flood is strange and maximum due to the drainage system of the Capital City whereas rest of the state is not much affected from flood.
