Assam Flood Crisis: Rahul Gandhi Meets Flood Victims

On Monday, Rahul Gandhi, the opposition leader in the Lok Sabha, visited the state to have talks with the victims of Assam.

New Delhi: July 8, 2024

Rahul Gandhi, the leader of the opposition in the Lok Sabha, travelled to Assam on Monday to meet with flood victims as the state’s situation remained terrible, with approximately 23 lakh people affected across 28 districts. 78 people lost their lives in this year’s flood, landslide, and storm; 66 of those deaths occurred during the flood, even though the water level in most rivers remained above the danger mark.

After meeting with the victims, the Congress leader went to a relief camp at the Thalai In Youth Care Centre in Fulertal, Assam. The second wave of floods in Assam affected about 23 lakh people in 3,446 villages across 28 districts and swamped 68,432.75 hectares of crops.

The Congress leader was urged to bring up the matter of Assam’s ongoing floods in Parliament by a team from the Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC), which is led by President Bhupen Borah.

The Congress party mocked Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday for his trips to Russia and Austria, while Rahul Gandhi is scheduled to make a third trip to the conflict-ridden state of Manipur.

Jairam Ramesh and Rahul Gandhi

The leader of the opposition in the Lok Sabha is visiting Assam and Manipur today, while the non-biological prime minister is in Moscow, according to a post on X by politician Jairam Ramesh.

Naturally, those who support the non-biological PM have asserted that he temporarily put an end to the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. This journey to Moscow is probably going to result in even more outrageous claims,” he remarked.

Rahul Gandhi is visiting Manipur for the third time since the state’s crisis broke out fourteen months ago. But since the serious situation started on May 3, 2023, the non-biological Prime Minister has never made the time nor demonstrated any desire to travel to Manipur, even for a few hours. “He hasn’t even had a meeting with other politicians in the state, like MLAs and MPs, or with the Chief Minister, who is a member of his own party,” he declared.
