DIBRUGARH, April 6: Rainstorm lashed out in Lezai under Larua Mouza in Dibrugarh district on Sunday, causing large-scale damage of property worth over several lakhs of rupees. As almost all dwellings of villagers were razed to ground, people had to pass a sleepless night without any relief materials received from any quarters.

Asom Yuba Parishad (AYP) president Sunil Rajkonwar along with his members visited the devastated areas and took stock of the damage caused by rainstorm.

Talking to The Sentinel over phone from Lezai, Konwar censured the district administration as well as Moran MLA Jiban Tara Ghatowar for not taking any efforts to visit the people or provide any help or fincial assistance to the people for rebuilding their houses.

Konwar demanded a considerable amount to be given to each of the affected families soon, either from Chief Minister’s Relief Fund or Disaster Magement fund, so that they could build their dwellings.
