Met flood affected people, demand immediate relief
Jammu: A social and political activist, Abdul Gani Kohli today completed his ten days tour of several flood and landslide affected areas of
Kalakote constituency and took stock of situation in the area where administration and army are trying to provide relief to the people.
During his visit, Kohli visited Chatman, Dalogri, Bindi Jugrial, Nalooria, Triath, Sandpit, Moolah and other areas and met the affected
people who sought him help to get relief assistance from the administration early. Kohli interacted with several people and met delegation from several villages and heard their problems who narrated their plight as most of their homes have either fully damaged or need major repair.
He was also apprised about the plight of the Bakerwal families whose are still missing along with their cattle in Kashmir valley, who had gone there with the livestock. “There is immediate need to search for the Bakerwals who have gone to South Kashmir meadows with their livestock. Families have no information about their whereabouts”, Kohli said. Kohli has demanded immediate release of financial aid to the people who have lost their homes during the flash floods and landslides in the Kalakote area and other parts of the Rajouri district. “Thought Indian Army and administration is doing everything to provide help to the people, but there is need to speed up the process as affected villagers will have to face the winter months. As houses are damaged, financial aid is necessary at the moment”, he said. He highlighted that in absence of communication system and due to tough terrain some areas are still inaccessible for administration and media where nature has shown its cruel face more when compared with parts of the State.
