New Delhi, July 29 (ANI): Home Minister Rajnath Singh will be making an aerial survey of flood-affected areas of Nagaon, Morigaon and Kaziranga in Assam tomorrow.

He will also be visiting Bhagatgaon Camp of flood-affected residents in Morigaon district.

Rajnath will hold a meeting with Chief Minister Sarbanand Sonowal and other state government officers in Guwahati before returning to Delhi in the evening.

The rise in the water level of the Brahmaputra River has made the condition of Assam very critical and many districts have been submerged in the flow of water.

The flood situation in Assam worsened as new areas have been inundated.

Over 15 lakh people were affected in 19 districts in the current flood.

As per reports, the administration has rescued all affected families as surging water breached Bongaon embankment at Majuli river island in Jorhat.

All the rescued people have been provided shelter in the embankment. (ANI)
