New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi expressed concern Thursday over the flood situation in some states and urged his party workers to help the affected people.
“The flood situation in Kerala, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Odisha, Assam and Bihar is grim, with lakhs of citizens stranded or displaced. I request Congress workers in the affected states to do all they can to help those in need and pray that the flood waters soon subside,” Rahul Gandhi wrote on Twitter.
“The people of Wayanad, my Lok Sabha constituency, are in my thoughts and prayers as they battle raging flood waters. I was to travel to Wayanad, but I’ve now been advised by officials that my presence will disrupt relief operations. I’m awaiting their OK to travel,” Rahul Gandhi said in another tweet.
In Kerala, water level is rising in most of the rivers and dams across the state with Kannur, Wayanad, Idukki, Malappuram, Kozhikode and Kasaragod districts facing a flood-like situation.
