With water levels receding, the focus is now shifting from rescue to relief and rehabilitation. One of the biggest issues going forward will be shortage of essential supplies to J&K - food, water, medicines and blankets – with winter fast approaching. We encourage our community to stand in solidarity with distressed flood-affected people in Jammu and Kashmir and be part of the national effort to support them in this hour of crisis. Do contribute generously towards this relief.
The Central Government is extending full cooperation to the Government of Jammu and Kashmir in the measures for rescue, relief and rehabilitation besides, direct assistance to the affected people. I request all fellow countrymen to stand shoulder to shoulder with our distressed brothers and sisters in Jammu and Kashmir and be part of the national effort to support them in this hour of crisis.
I appeal to all citizens to donate generously to the Prime Minister`s National Relief Fund.”
