Sanchore (Rajasthan), Aug 4 (IANS) Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Friday visited the flood affected villages in Jalore district of Rajasthan.
Rahul Gandhi met flood affected people in Kachhela, Devda, Dawai, Amli and Hadecha villages in Sanchore, the worst affected area in the recent flood like situation in the state. Some of the villages are still cut off.
Residents drew the Congress leader’s attention towards the hardship they face due to excessive rainfall and flood like situation in the district.
“We told him of our problems. There are villages which are cut off and are waterlogged. He assured us that he will raise these issues in the parliament,” Congress worker Jagdish Manju told IANS from here.
“Whatever we can do, will do for you,” Rahul said while interacting with the villagers.
Rahul Gandhi while talking to media said no rehabilitation or relief works had been taken up here.
“Talking about rehabilitation is different and actually doing on ground is different. It seems nothing has been done.”
Former Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and state Congress President Sachin Pilot accompanied him.
Rahul Gandhi will visit the flood affected areas of Gujarat later on Friday.
