VILLAGERS EVACUATED AS RIVER SUTLEJ FLOODS, LEAVING OVER 50 VILLAGES SUBMERGED

A flood alert was issued on Monday by the Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA) of Punjab after water was released from an Indian dam into river Sutlej, leading to rising water levels in the area.

More than 50 villages have been submerged near the Sutlej river on Wednesday. Areas like Kasur, Chachran Sharif, Kot Mithan, Chanda Singhwala, Gati Kalanger, Mastayki, and Bhikiwind have all been affected. While lives have been turned upside down overnight, hundreds of acres of essential crops have been destroyed.

FLOOD WATER BETWEEN 175,000 AND 200,000  CUSECS HAS REACHED THE GANDA SINGH WALA VILLAGE.
