Apathy in flood-hit Punjab; houses lost, crops damaged but babus roll out red carpet for CM Amarinder Singh

Reflecting the apathy on the part of the local administration, a red-carpet welcome was on Tuesday accorded to Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh, who was visiting the areas affected by floods.
In the wake of floods in Punjab's Patiala and Sangrur areas, people have lost their houses and crops have been damaged. However, pictures of the administration giving a VVIP welcome to the Chief Minister instead of extending all-desired help to those affected by floods cut a very sorry figure.
The Punjab CM had yesterday conducted an aerial survey of the flood-hit areas in Patiala and Sangrur, and also assessed the damage done to crops because of flooding due to a 150-foot long breach in Ghaggar river catchment area. 
The Ghaggar river, notably, passes through the state’s Patiala and Sangrur districts.
"The situation is not that good on both sides of Ghaggar river. The water has gone up to Bathinda. Nobody expected that the water would come to this level by the end of July. Normally, the flooding occurs in August in Punjab but the rains have aggravated the situation in this month," Singh had said.
