A Kashmir flood survivor, Ram, praised the government and the army for massive relief and rescue operations. However, some people showed anger that relief efforts reached them much later after the floods had devastated everything.

 

It is worth mentioning that water has receded to a large extent in Jhelum river and the main flood canal, which kept overflowing for at least three days and caused unprecedented flooding in residential areas.

 

A number of areas have been cleared of water while dewatering is being done in several colonies of Srinagar city.

 

Several areas still remain marooned, particularly in the old city, but relief material is being sent to the people who have been temporarily shifted to some safe places within the flooded areas.

 

There is anger among the people at the media also, alleging that some sections did not portray the true picture.
