With the flood situation in Assam getting worse day by day, Assam’s heartthrob Zubeen Garg hit the roads on his mission to help out the flood affected victims of various places in Assam.
Assam Flood: This year’s flood has affected over 10 lakh people spreading across 21 districts of Assam. Also, 60 people across the state lost their lives with eight people being from Guwahati city itself cause of the rain and flood, according to a report by Assam State Disaster Management Authority(ASDMA).
The districts which are worse affected include Dhemaji, Lakhimpur, Biswanath, Darrang, Nalbari, Chirang, Goalpara, Golaghat, Jorhat, Majuli, Sivasagar, Cachar districts, Barpeta, Bongaigaon, Kokrajhar, Dhubri, South Salmara, Morigaon, Nagaon, Karbi Anglong and Karimganj.
Among all these districts, South Salmara was the worst hit with over 3 lakh people losing their everything to the flood.
However, even though the government is trying out their best for the rescue and relief of the flood affected victims, Assam’s heartthrob Zubeen Garg yesterday hit the roads of our very own Guwahati city collecting funds and other necessities for the flood affected people.
Zubeen Garg was accompanied by various other artist and his well wishers on his quest of reaching out to the masses for gathering collections. Even though it scorching hot outside with temperature hitting over 37°C, it didn’t stop him or his associates from going out for this noble cause. Everyone walked the entire city from morning 11 A.M up til 6 P.M in the evening and collected a very good amount along with other necessary stuff from various shops, organizations and citizens across the city.
This is not new last year also, Zubeen Garg came out for the people of his state during times of need and forwarded his helping hand towards them in the same way by collecting relief materials from the citizens of Guwahati and making sure it reaches them.
Zubeen Garg’s fans have also played a big role in this campaign and have collected relief materials from various areas.
No wonder why Zubeen Da is called the People’s Artist.
For this noble deed, many wished him and extended their love and support towards him through social media and other mediums.
We also wish him all the luck in his endeavor and also ask our readers to extend their helping hand towards the people of Assam.
