Tough time for Kashmir flood victims, still awaiting government compensation and help

Rajouri, Nov 5 (ANI): Victims displaced by the worst floods that hit Kashmir in a century, continue to live in makeshift homes and cry foul as they have not received any compensation for their losses from the government. Hundreds of people were killed and thousands of villages devastated by the worst flooding in decades in the Kashmir valley. Roads in Srinagar, Kashmir's main city were transformed into stagnant canals strewn with wreckage, trash and dead animals. PM Modi announced 5.7 billion rupees in assistance for housing and 1.8 billion rupees to fix six major hospitals in the state that are in poor condition and need immediate central support, according to an earlier government statement.
