At a time, when Assam is reeling under the floods especially lower Assam, which is devastated by the second waves of floods, an Assam minister was seen distributing chocolates among flood-affected children in Baksa district on Friday.
Assam Social Welfare Minister and Kokrajhar East MLA Pramila Rani Brahma today visited the relief camps in the flood-affected Baksa district to take stock of the condition of the people. Instead of providing meals to the flood-affected people, she concluded her responsibilities by only donating chocolates to the children.
“We were hoping that the Minister would provide some relief measures or clothes; instead she distributed chocolates among the children,” said a flood-affected people. “We have not yet got any relief from the government side,” added another victim.
It may be mentioned here that when the Assam government is claiming that it has enough funds for rehabilitating the flood-affected people in the State, Assam Assembly Speaker Hitendra Nath Goswami on Thursday announced to donate his one month salary to the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund for the flood-affected people. On the other hand, several celebrities including Akshay Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan, Seema Biswas and Jatin Bora have come up with their helping hands to donate generously to the flood-affected people.
