New Delhi, October 27: On the occasion of Vijayadashami, Chief Minister of Sikkim Prem Singh Tamang dedicated his day for the victims of the recent flash flood. Standing in solidarity the Chief Minister visited several proposed sites for rehabilitation in the Mining and Chanatar areas under Rangpo sub-division.
During the visit, the Chief Minister outlined numerous programmes and initiatives for the victims of the flash floods in terms of assistance and rehabilitation. The stability of the land and mapping were subject to discussion as well highlighting the statistical relevance of the data.
He further assured every family of his support to restore normalcy at the earliest.
The initiative is a vital component of the ‘Punarwas Yojana,’ a dedicated housing project aimed at providing essential support and rehabilitation to individuals and families impacted by a recent disaster. In a comprehensive approach to assisting victims of the flash floods, specific eligibility criteria have been put in place.
Under this scheme, individuals whose homes have been fully or partially rendered uninhabitable due to flash floods are being allocated houses or flats to aid in their recovery and resettlement. These ready-to-move-in flats are part of the ‘Janta Housing Colony,’ a strategically planned endeavour to facilitate the rehabilitation of the affected families.
Meanwhile, the Chief Minister expressed gratitude to the government officials for their selfless service on holiday to support those impacted by the cala.
