The Central Government is continuously monitoring the situation in Assam and is working closely with the State Government to provide all possible assistance to

overcome this challenge.”

He also said, “Army and NDRF teams are present in the flood affected areas. They are conducting evacuation operations and assisting those who are affected. The Air Force has conducted over 250 sorties as a part of the evacuation process.”

The PM added, “CM @himantabiswa, Ministers of the Assam Government and officials are working round the clock in the districts and helping those who have suffered. I pray for the safety and wellbeing of all those in affected areas and once again assure all possible support.”
