Lack of road connectivity hindering relief work

The lack of connectivity of roads, where only two-wheelers can ply, is making it impossible for the officials.

In Talamari village of Raichur taluk, which has a population of 1,200, the process of clearing of debris is yet to begin. Drinking water is not available and on October 4, an irate mob burnt the vehicles of government officials and elected representatives.

Hulagunchi at Sindhanur taluk is another village which is highly affected, as the connecting road is completely damaged. However local organisations  and NGOs have made arrangements for food and medical checkup. Basappa, a villager, says, “All our crops are washed away and stored grains are wet. We have to start afresh from buying utensils to clothing and rebuilding shelter.” There are 102 houses at Hulagunchi  of which 100 houses have completely collapsed. They have erected  themselves temporary sheds on the roadside by stitching up plastic cement bags.

A local organisation has also deputed one doctor treat the villagers.
