Durgaganj Village (Uttar Pradesh), Aug 21 (ANI): The rising level of river water over the past couple of days has submerged many villages and rendered thousands of villagers homeless in Uttar Pradesh.
Several rivers, including the Ghaghra, Rapti, Sharda and Saryu, are in spate. Villages in Shrawasti, Sitapur, Sant Kabir Nagar, Kushinagar, Maharajganj and Bahraich districts of the state have been inundated by flood waters.
"We are facing a lot of trouble due to the floods. There is no fodder for our cattle and there is no food for humans. We tie our cattle by the roadside. We have not received any help from the Government," claimed Sitaram Yadav, a villager.
Villagers are now being forced to live by the roadside.
"We are living on rooftops and on roadsides, as we have nowhere to go. We have received no help," said Hariram Yadav, another villager. (ANI)
