NEW DELHI: Former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen on Monday prayed for the people of Assam who have been left devastated by the flood in the region.
Pietersen took to social media to sympathise with the people of Assam and his Twitter post read: "My thoughts are with all the most beautiful people I met during my trip to Assam in March, where the horrible life-threatening flood is currently destroying lives. PLEASE BE SAFE!"
Earlier, India football captain Sunil Chhetri had also called for attention and assistance for the northeastern state which has been battling with floods amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
"Along with the prayers, Assam needs as much attention and help as possible to recover from the floods it is under," Chhetri had said in a tweet.
"There's been considerable loss of life -- both man and animal and I can only sincerely hope that the numbers don't rise," he added. IANS
