People display reluctance over evacuation from property at low-lying area of floodplains in northern India
In a tragic incident, the people residing at the low-lying area of floodplains showed reluctance over evacuation in northern India’s New Delhi.
The incident took place in Mandawali district on July 13.
The visuals of the incident showed heavily flooded areas in the low-lying floodplains of the Yamuna river. The residents of the areas had set up temporary huts with tarpaulin and bamboo sticks and with the recent flood warning upon the water level reaching 207 metres mark, the government had urged the residents to immediately vacate the place. However, the locals stood reluctantly and denied evacuation. The government has made an effort and has set up as many 114 tents with white canopies with arrangements of food and water.
The rescue teams are continuing to make efforts and convince people to evacuate the area and save their lives.
