JJP MLA visits flood affected area, slapped by woman


It happens only in Haryana! A woman allegedly slapped JJP MLA Ishwar Singh on Wednesday when he was assessing the flood situation in his constituency, the apparent video of which has gone viral on social media. The Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) is part of the BJP-led ruling coalition in Haryana. The woman was apparently furious over the flood situation at the Bhatia village in Singh’s Ghula constituency due to spilling of the Ghaggar river.

When reached, Singh said he had gone to evaluate the situation but the woman and some other people, annoyed by inundation in their village caused by the rupture of a ‘bundh (small dam)’, confronted him. “The woman said that if I had wanted, the ‘bundh’ would not have broken. Though I clarified to her that it was a natural disaster and there had been heavy rain during the past few days,” Singh said.

A video clip of the incident has gone viral on the social media which shows a woman hitting the MLA in front of the public, while cursing him. “Why did you come now?” says the woman before hitting the MLA. However, Singh said he has not requested for any action to be taken against the woman. “I don’t want any action (to be taken) for what she did,” he said.

Several villages in Punjab and Haryana have been affected by the spilling Ghaggar river after the recent rainfall. Relief measures are underway on a large scale in the two states as many parts remained submerged following unceasing rainfall in the region.

The Army rescued 910 students and 50 others from a private university in Punjab after it was flooded with water due to heavy rains, a statement said on Monday. The civil administration in Punjab and Haryana had earlier sought help for the rescue operation from the Army, which sent the Flood Relief columns of Army’s Western Command to assist the administration in the flood affected areas of the two states.

Army steps in for rescue operations; Water level rises to 1st floor in various places

The Army rescue teams were dispatched to areas including Patiala, Jalandhar, Fatehgarh Sahib, Ropar in Punjab, as well as Panchkula and Ambala in Haryana. Upon reaching the flood-hit areas, the teams worked tirelessly alongside Army engineer detachments throughout the night to execute the safe evacuation of the stranded individuals. Their efforts not only ensured the well-being of the affected populace but also played a crucial role in preventing potential breaches in canals due to the overwhelming floodwaters. Late on Sunday night, the Army successfully rescued 910 students and 50 others from the flooded premises of Chitkara University in Rajpura, Patiala.

“After assessing the situation on the ground, the rescue and relief columns reached the affected areas. The rescue team along with the Army engineer detachments worked throughout the (Sunday-Monday intervening) night to evacuate the stranded people and helped to prevent breaching of canals by the flood waters,” it said.

At Araji Sabran village of Ferozepur district, 44 persons, including women and children were evacuated from the affected areas. In a major effort, Army engineers also helped in preventing the breach of Sirhind canal by repairing the embankment, thereby preventing the flooding of Doraha village in Punjab and nearby areas. “The Army is closely monitoring the situation in coordination with the civil administration and all the stakeholders. The Army is continuing to provide all assistance to help mitigate the hardship being faced by the citizens in affected areas,” it said.
