SILCHAR: Cachar Deputy Commissioner Keerthi Jalli on Monday said that efforts are on to contain the damage caused by the first wave of flood in the district. She also added that Katigorah and Borkhola are the worst hit constituencies of the district with around 45,000 affected.

Landslides at different locations have cut the connectivity of Barak Valley with the rest of the world. While expressing her views, DC Jalli said, "One hundred and thirteen relief camps have been operationalized in Cachar and if required more will be opened. I request those in distress to come forward to these camps and take the benefit. Both food and shelter will be provided at the camps."

The Deputy Commissioner also warned citizens not to venture near water bodies or snapped electrical wires as it may lead to accidents. "In such conditions, there are chances of spreading of water-borne diseases, so I request everyone to stay vigil and hygienic," she said.

On the price rise of commodities, Jalli affirmed that there was sufficient storage of essential food items and vigil was being maintained to check on the market prices of essentials under the circumstances, stated a press release.

Speaking on the condition of the Jowai Ratacherra road, DC Jalli said, "Some locations have been cleared and few more remaining. I am in constant touch with DC (East Jaintia Hills). We ask stranded passengers not to panic and help each other in the time of crisis."
