RAUTAHAT: Five days after the floods, a team of government officials including the chief district officer, chiefs of different security agencies and Durga Bhagawati Rural Municipality Chairperson Arun Kumar Sah visited the flood-affected Dalit settlement of Badaharwa in Durga Bhagawati Rural Municipality on Tuesday.

The team assured that distribution of relief to the people would begin very soon. “Apart from Badaharwa, places such as Ishanath, Rajdevi, Yamunamai have also been affected by floods, and we’ve assigned teams to supply relief and carry out rescue at the earliest in view of the plight of victims who are living in the open and don’t have anything to eat,” said CDO Kiran Thapa.
