Nagaland Governor P B Acharya has shot off a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi apprising him about the rampant landslides caused by incessant rainfall for the last few weeks and resulting in major disaster, affecting normal life of the people of Nagaland.
In his letter, the Governor requested the Central Government to extend all possible help to Nagaland to overcome the calamity.
Acharya informed that the State Government machineries were making all out efforts to restore damaged infrastructures and relief and rehabilitation.
However, the State was unable to address the challenges due to lack of resources, lack of adequate machineries and equipment and also due to poor connectivity.
He therefore, requested the Centre to provide the much needed resources to the State.
The Governor also apprised the Prime Minister about the recent landslides in many areas, flooding and water logging in the urban areas which also claimed several lives besides causing destruction to property.
He pointed out that many districts were cut off from the rest of the country due to heavy landslides and soil erosion.
He also mentioned that essential infrastructures like power supply lines, communication networks, etc have also been damaged.
Supplies of essential commodities to all the district headquarters including petroleum products have not been possible and stocks are getting depleted, he added in the letter.
