Centre helping Assam generously in tackling floods: Himanta Biswa Sarma


GUWAHATI: Assam health and finance minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma on Monday said that the central government has been helping the state generously in fighting the floods.

Visiting flood-hit Kaziranga National Park, Sarma remarked that centre has been helping the Assam government in terms of implementing the schemes to solve the flood problem of the state.

“The demand to declare flood in Assam as a national problem is an emotional issue. Only declaration of a national problem cannot solve the issue,” he said.

Minister Sarma took stock of the flood condition in the national park and also interacted with the staff of the park.
