As the rain stops in Punjab and Haryana, 293 people are still stranded in the tribal district of Himachal.
Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu, the chief minister of Himachal Pradesh, is doing an airborne inspection to assess the damage brought on by torrential rains in Lahaul-Spiti on Wednesday.

In order to assess the damage brought on by the persistent rains, Chief Minister Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu flew over Sissu, Chandertal, and Losar in the tribal Lahaul-Spiti district and Manali region of Kullu district.

"Despite the difficult circumstances at Chandertal brought on by the significant snowfall, the State government was assuring the security of all 293 trapped residents who were residing in the camps. The majority of the tourists and residents trapped in Spiti Valley have been evacuated, and the remaining ones will soon be freed. The State government was working diligently to offer the stranded people every bit of support, and I was keeping a close eye on the issue, too, Mr. Sukhu remarked.

He claimed that the 52 Kullu schoolchildren who were imprisoned at Sissu in Lahaul had been safely evacuated. "Apart from this, over 25,000 people who had been stranded in Manali and Kullu for the previous three days in various sites have been successfully evacuated. Up to 3,000 people had been evacuated from Kasol and its surroundings, and as of 4 PM, 6,552 cars had crossed Kullu into Chandigarh.

Since June 24, when the monsoon season began, the State has had up to 51 landslides and 32 flash floods, as of July 11. In the rain-related incidents, at least 88 individuals have died and 16 are still missing.

After conducting an aerial inspection, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar declared a compensation of Rs. 4 lakh for the families of those who lost loved ones in the flash flood that happened owing to heavy rainfall throughout the State. He claimed that because of above-average rainfall in the State and water imports from Punjab and Himachal Pradesh, the situation has gotten worse.

Bhupinder Singh Hooda, the leader of the opposition, also went to the flood-affected villages. According to him, waterlogging is a significant issue that the government must approach like a war to resolve.

"Many could have been saved from this terrible scenario if the government had taken preventative action in a timely manner. Before the rainy season, the authorities failed to properly clean the stormwater outlets, sewers, and drains. Farmers' crops, shopkeepers' stores, and people's homes could have been largely rescued from submersion if the government had carried out its duty in a timely manner, he claimed.

An official declaration from Punjab claimed that 1,058 villages across 14 districts had been destroyed by the flood's fury. Three fatal rain-related occurrences occurred in the previous twenty-four hours, it was said.

Chetan Singh Jauramajra, the minister of information and public relations for Punjab, accused the Haryana government of neglecting to promptly clear the syphon constructed upon Ghaggar under the Hansi-Butana canal, which he said caused severe water logging in Punjabi areas.
