Heavy rains and cloudbursts have triggered flooding, landslides, and the collapse of homes and bridges that have severely disrupted access even to basic amenities.

Sharma said SJVN will always remain at the forefront in assisting the government’s efforts in relief measures.

“We stand by the people of the state in this hour of distress and express our solidarity and support to the ongoing relief and rehabilitation efforts. We hope that the funds will aid the people as they rebuild their lives in the aftermath of the recent floods. I also appeal to everyone to generously donate to help the needy to tide over the calamity,” said Sharma.

He also expressed grief over the loss of life and property due to landslides and flash floods.

Earlier, SJVN employees voluntarily donated their one-day salary amounting to Rs 55 lakh to the CM Relief Fund.
