Yamuna bank evacuees say government not giving adequate relief
To use toilet we have to walk over a kilometer. Also, there is no proper arrangement for water and food," she said
Twenty-six-year-old Premvati, a mother of three, is having a tough time making ends meet after her family was evacuated four days ago because of the rising water levels in the Yamuna. With the Yamuna flowing over the danger mark, her family is one of the many living in Chilla village who have been evacuated.
Breastfeeding her eight-month-old baby, inside a makeshift tent near Mayur Vihar, she complained about not getting adequate support from the government. "We were asked to evacuate four days ago. We moved here and have built a temporary tent along the roadside all on our own. To use toilet we have to walk over a kilometer. Also, there is no proper arrangement for water and food," she said.
