Faizabad, Aug 22 (ANI): Life in Faizabad in Uttar Pradesh remains affected due to unabated floods caused by monsoon rains.
Many rivers of the region are flowing above the danger mark, creating a near exodus situation as people are forced to take shelter in the higher reaches.
“River is in spate. All the nearby areas are flooded. We are facing a lot of problems,” said Keshav Ram, a flood victim.
The authorities have provided relief material to hundreds of families.
“Each of the families have been given 10 kilograms of rice, 12 kilograms of animal fodder and two liters of Kerosene oil. We have provided relief material for a total of 239 families,” said Suresh Kumar, a land ceiling official.
Thousands of villagers are faced to live like refugees in the wake of monsoon floods, which have swept across large expanses including agricultural fields and human habitations of the region. (ANI)
