Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Monday visited the flood-affected area of Gahinpara under Bajali subdivision and assured to repair the Kardoiguri Bamakhata road and breached embankment near Doloi Goxai Thaan.

Sonowal further informed that he has ordered the deputy commissioners and other officials to supply relief materials maintaining proper quality.

“The deputy commissioners have been ordered to look after the flood-affected people,” Sonowal said.
