Football is very popular in all the northeastern states including Assam. Given this, Arsenal and Chelsea have missed their fans in this difficult time.
The captain of the Indian football team, Sunil Chhetri, wrote on Twitter that, ‘Along with prayers, there is a need to pay more attention to Assam and provide every possible help to get rid of the hardships caused by the floods. There has been a lot of loss of lives of humans and animals, I am hoping that the number of casualties does not increase. # AssamFloods. ‘
Along with the prayers, Assam needs as much attention and help as possible to recover from the floods it is under.
There’s been considerable loss of life – both man and animal, and I can only sincerely hope that the numbers don’t rise. #AssamFloods
