Sirajganj flood remains unchanged, five lakh marooned

Sirajganj flood remains unchanged, five lakh marooned

The overall flood situation in Sirajganj district has remained unchanged, causing immense sufferings to the marooned people.

The water level in the Jamuna river in the district slightly decreased and now the river is flowing 20cm above the danger level on Wednesday.

About five lakh people are still marooned and they are facing acute shortage of pure water and dry food.

Apart from these crises, many people who took shelter at Enayetpur-Bherakhal Flood Control Embankment are living inhumane life staying with cattle in the same shanty, our local correspondent said.

The inhabitants of the shelter centers said that most of them do not have food in their houses. Consequently, their sufferings are mounting in the long term flood.  

Meanwhile, Sirajganj relief and rehabilitation officer Md Abdur Rahim said five lakh inhabitants of seven upazilas in the district became marooned.

Some 563.5 metric tonnes rice, 5,890 packets of dry foods and Tk 8 lakh in cash were allocated for the flood-hit people while most of those have already been distributed among them, he added.
