Anini cut off, DC sends SOS
Itanagar, Apr 26 (UNI) Anini, the district headquarters of Dibang Valley district in Arunachal Pradesh, has been cut off since past few weeks following massive landslides due to incessant rains.
Deputy Commissioner (DC) R Ronya informed that heavy and torrential downpour for the last few weeks had caused massive landslides in all the roads causing misery to the people.
''Continuous rain for the past few weeks have damaged five road points including washing off two of them,'' he informed, adding that there was no road in a particular point for approximately 200 meters.
The DC further pointed out that disruption of road communication had led to severe crisis in availability of essential commodities in the district.
''There is no stock of essential commodities like rice, salt and sugar at fair price shops, godowns and private shops. Although we have written about the food scarcity to the concerned authorities a long time back, there is yet to be any action in the matter'', the DC said. If immediate attention was not taken to restore surface communication and supply of essential items, law and order problem might rise as a consequent, he added.
