According to the people, nearly 15 lakes and ponds in different villages in the district have also been breached, adding to the already grim flood situation.
"I have nearly lost everything. Nobody has turned up even to enquire about our situation. We have not had food to eat since the past three days," said Kantaben, a flood-victim.
Many others, who have not been as lucky as Kantaben, have been spending nights under the open sky as their houses have been washed away alongwith their belongings.
"We have not received any food and we do not have shelter. We have been spending the cold nights under the sky. Our children are hungry, and nobody is concerned," said Bhikhabhai, another flood-victim.
Surendranagar-Ahmedabad Highway also remains closed. Floodwaters have submerged more than 20 villages for the last three days in Gujarat.
