Due to heavy rains and landslides in Sikkim, life has been disturbed for the last several days. Landslides and roads have been blocked due to stone fall. There are many areas of North Sikkim, where people are hungry and thirsty. It is difficult to get government relief work in such areas. Because there is neither a road nor a bridge, how can the traffic of vehicles be good. But the state government has taken the help of chopper service considering that a large population does not become a victim of starvation due to the disaster in the state, meeting the daily needs of the people. It is through this that relief work is being carried out in those areas where people have been victims of heavy rains and natural tragedy.
As you know the bridges have been damaged due to heavy rains in the state. There are rocks scattered on the roads. Therefore relief work is being conducted in such areas through chopper aircraft. A chopper aircraft Uttara carrying essential commodities today in the villages of Sikkim and Paidung in North Sikkim. Which had about 5.5 tons of essential goods. It should be known that this area has been cut from the rest of Changu since July 10. People here are falling prey to starvation and disease due to lack of help. On the request of the Sikkim government today, the IAF’s MI17V5 Chopper aircraft landed in these areas with five and a half tons of relief material and brought relief materials to the villagers. After a long time, the lives of the villagers have come to life.
