This period is crucial
After the flood waning away this week all the residents felt a huge relief. However, the state government knew that this period is more crucial since the after-effects of floods can be epidemics, diseases and lots of problems due to the dirt and nuisance created by the water that swallowed down everything. The disposal of digital waste in the form of televisions, mobiles, computers and other electronic products that were submerged under the water is also a huge challenge that the state has to face.
