Mizoram to Provide Drinking Water to Flood-hit Assam

Recently a catastrophic flood in Silchar left Assam in agony, leading to destruction and deaths. With the rest of the country trying to make it better for the state, Mizoram decided to offer drinking water during the Assam flood situation. The Chief Minister, Zoramthanga, was observed discussing the annihilation with his Assam counterpart, Himanta Biswa Sarma, stitching a plan to send drinking water to the affected areas in the neighbouring state.

However, with the Barak Valley being severely hit by the flood in Assam, the Mizoram borders underlined in the southern zone have also suffered some devastation. This, in turn, led to limiting the access and transportation of drinking water sources. To this, the CM of Mizoram (Zoramthanga) is willing to offer some help by sending barrels of drinking water in trucks.
