Why is there no mainstream media coverage of these devastating floods? Why is more importance being given to trivial issues and not this calamity? This is the cardinal issue which must be addressed immediately! #AssamFloods pic.twitter.com/5BF0aRaeBa— Prakhar Khandal (@PrakharKhandal2) July 15, 2019

The floods have swallowed over 90% of Kaziranga National Park, forcing the animals to flea to the highlands. Unfortunately, we’hv lost two one-horned rhinos in the calamity.

When other parts of the country suffers from such disasters people of Assam always support,help & pray for them. But when Assam suffers from such natural disasters only few come for support and help. Why so?#AssamFloods pic.twitter.com/uP2ZjX1QSV— Proud INDIAN 🇮🇳 (@iproud2bindian) July 15, 2019
Search and rescue teams were successfully deployed by National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) and the Indian Army.
A soldier helping a citizen during floods in Chirang District, Assam today. The Army has not been officially requisitioned for assistance in this particular area. It doesn’t matter. This is the Indian Army. No call for help goes unanswered. @adgpi pic.twitter.com/F4JDOOzHdD— Major Gaurav Arya (Retd) (@majorgauravarya) July 11, 2019
