Bhutan will release water from its Kuricchu Hydropower Plant reservoirs in Kuricchu river today and hence Bongaigaon Deputy Commissioner Adil Khan has put all the concerned departments on alert to tackle the emergency situation likely to arise after the river water reaches the district.
Additional teams of NDRF and SDRF personnel have been asked to respond in time in the district if rescue operations are needed, Deputy Commissioner Adil khan said to media.
Bhutan was supposed to release the water on Tuesday but the Deputy Commissioner had requested the Bhutan administration not to do it as Bongaigaon had to struggle with water logging problem on that day. Hence, they will release the water today.
In Bongaigaon district, a total 2.70 lakh people have been affected by the Assam. Deputy Commissioner Adil Khan had already distributed Rs 3800 to each of the 110 flood-hit families as a nominal financial aid for their immediate help.
