India floods kill 79, displace two million

GUWAHATI, India — At least 79 people have died and 2.2 million forced to leave their homes over the last week as torrential monsoon rains triggered floods across India's northeast, officials said Monday.

Assam state, which borders Bhutan and Bangladesh, has been worst hit with the massive Brahmaputra river breaching its banks, while extensive flooding has also hit the states of Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur and Meghalaya.

The Assam state government said 26 of 27 districts had endured flash floods as heavy rains destroyed thousands of flimsy homes, blocked roads and swamped fields.

"The people of Assam are facing one of the worst floods in recent times that has inflicted considerable damage," Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said in the state capital Guwahati after touring the area by helicopter.

"The central and state governments are doing everything possible to provide relief to the people," he added.

The Assam government said in a statement that an estimated 2.2 million people had been displaced, with thousands of homes wrecked and more than 500,000 people being sheltered in relief camps.

"So far 79 people have died in separate incidents of boat capsize or have drowned while trying to escape the gushing waters and also in landslides," it said.

"We have opened makeshift relief camps for the displaced, while many more were forced to take shelter on raised platforms and in tarpaulin tents," Assam's health minister Himanta Biswa Sarma told AFP.

Officials said more than 70 percent of the Kaziranga National Park, famous for its tigers, one-horned rhinos and elephants, was submerged.

"The animals are trying to move to safer areas," park warden Sanjib Bora told AFP.

In the adjoining states of Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur and Meghalaya, monsoon rains caused widespread flooding but there were no reported deaths.

The death toll from landslides and flooding in Bangladesh over the last week has risen from 108 to 123, officials said, though floodwaters were declining.

"Around 900,000 people have been affected by floods in five districts of the country on both sides of the Brahmaputra," Abdul Wajed, head of Bangladesh's National Disaster Response Coordination Center told AFP.

"We have mobilised relief for the affected people," he said.

The monsoon, which sweeps across the sub-continent from June to September, is crucial for the region's farmers but also claims casualties from flooding every year.

Pakistan:

MPAs concerned over change of demography

KARACHI - The elected representatives of ruling PPP, MQM and PML-Likeminded have expressed strong reservations over influx of immigrants, change of demography, turning of indigenous people into minority as well as deprivation of economic rights to locals in the proposed Zulfikarabad City and Port, which would be a socio-economic zone in Thatta district of the province.They raised their apprehensions during a briefing made by the PPP provincial secretary general and former senator Taj Haider on the proposed Zulfikarabad City at committee room of the Sindh Assembly on Friday.Sindh Assembly Speaker Nisar Ahmed Khuhro, provincial ministers, MPAs from ruling PPP, MQM and PML-Likeminded as well as local leaders of the party attended the briefing. Taj Haider, who was assigned the task by the Sindh chief minister to develop consensus among the elected representatives, nationalists and political leaders and locals, made presentations for the Sindh Assembly members and highlighted the objectives and benefits of the Zulfikarabad project.Provincial Minister and PPP leader of Thatta District Muhammad Sadiq Memon while asking a question said that no one is against the development. People are afraid of becoming a minority population due to possible influx of outsiders and immigrants after completion of the Zulfikarabad City.He also raised apprehension that there is no mechanism to stop the voting right/political right of the outsiders as well as change of demography. He said that ownership rights of the locals be guaranteed through legislation. PPP Minister Sadiq Memon complained that elected representatives and locals were not taken onboard on the project, so how we will defend the project and will tell the people about the benefits of the new city. He suggested that elected representatives of the Thatta district should be given representation in the decision-making committees of the project. Haji Munwar Abbasi of ruling PPP also raised the same question and said that what mechanism will guarantee to ensure the economic rights of the locals and stop the politicalrights of the outsiders and immigrants in the new city. MQM MPA Heer Soho said that why Zulfikarabad Development Authority had been given autonomous status as it does not come under the supervision of the provincial planning and development department. She also raised reservations over the lack of representation of local elected representatives. Responding to the queries of the elected representatives, Taj Haider, who was head of committee to take people on board on the project, agreed with the suggestions and termed the reservations raised by the MPAs as genuine.About eviction/dislocation, inflow of migrants and deprivation of locals and destruction of natural resources/habitat, he said that the fear of inflow of migrants is well founded. He suggested the speaker Sindh Assembly and lawmakers to make legislation for ensuring the economic and political rights of the locals in the Zulfikarabad project, which is a socio-economic zone. The government was also working on the issue whether the area of Indus Delta, which has been declared Ramsar, comes under the proposed project or not. He further said that in the plan of project, there will be zero dislocation of the locals as government will compensate with finances and alternative homes to the people whose land comes under the project. Earlier, in his presentation, the PPP leader said that the idea of socio-economic zone (SEZ) in theory as well as in practice–provides for a special regulatory regime to ensure that the locals have the priority over jobs and other opportunities. He, however, said that the inflow of people from other parts of the country will be controlled by introducing the concept of work permits and land could only be leased and ownership to remain with the locals. The PPP leader said that the idea of proposed Zulfikarabad city, sea port and socio-economic zone was a replica of the Shenzhen (China) city. The success of Shenzhen city has resulted in establishment of five more Socio-Economic Zones (SEZs) in China, he argued. Like Hong Kong had a major influence in the successful development of Shenzhen as social and economic zone, Karachi could play a similar role in the development of the Zulfikarabad Social Economic Zone, PPP leader said. Regarding the acquiring of land, he said that more than 2/3rd (one million acres land) of 1.3 million acres of land earmarked for Zulfikarabad is under tidal. As per available statistics, sea intrusion eats away 18 acres of land each day in district Thatta, which showed that if intrusion was not stopped, the Thatta district will come under sea in 2025, PPP leader warned and added if this intrusion continues unabated, whole of the district Thatta might be lost to the sea in foreseeable future.To stop the further sea intrusion, construction of 230 kilometres underground wall in sea from Thatta and Badin is planned in the project, he said, adding that one million acres of land will be reclaimed from the sea through the Zulfikarabad project. Regarding implementation, he said that MoU has been signed with a Chinese firm, which would provide technical, financial and administrative support for development of Zulfikarabad SEZ. On the basis of conceptual plan, the Zulfikarabad Development Authority will make a Master Plan of the project. PPP leader said that President Asif Ali Zardari has approved the initiation of first phase of development from Shah Bunder, which will result in a consolidated and contiguous parcel of land of about 60,000 acres to initiate work on first phase of Zulfikarabad Social and Economic Zone. Under first phase, a mini sea port will be developed at Keti Bunder, which subsequently would be developed into a fully fledged Sea Port later. In the first phase, construction of the Dhandhari Bridge has been planned over River Indus, which will provide high speed connection to Zulfikarabad City, besides an expressway will be constructed from Garho to Dhandhari Bridge (21 KM) and subsequently from the Bridge to Shah Bunder, he added. Development of Zulfikarabad SEZ and Port at Keti Bunder with allied infrastructure will provide a tremendous opportunity for development of Thar Coal projects as Zulfikarabad will become the energy hub of the country – for both alternate (wind energy) and (improving access to Thar Coal) power production.In the end, Speaker Nisar Ahmed Khuhro said that the PPP leaders and elected representatives will inform the people about the benefits of the proposed project, which was vision of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto. The PPP leaders said that PML-N was the responsible for the energy crisis, which had shelved the Keti Bandar sea port, power plant and Thar Coal Project.

The flooding is too big to ignore for too long.  With disasters increasing around the world something as big as the Assam floods are bound to catch the attention of international media. But still not helping the common man to connect the dots between the weather and the earth changes, and the increase in earth quakes, as well as the rising of the sun further north than it needs to be.

India's Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is visiting the north-eastern state of Assam, where flooding has forced nearly a million people to leave their homes.

Seventy-seven people have died in flood-related incidents, including landslides and drowning. At least six people are reported to be missing.

More then 2,000 villages in 27 districts of the state have been inundated by flood waters, reports say.

A state minister has said it is the worst flooding in the state since 1998.

2.2 million people displaced, and not a peep in the US media. Disgusting.
