Flood relief operations by swayamsevaks
Hyderabad: Continuous heavy rains for some time brought the entire city of Hyderabad to standstill. In this hour of crisis, the RSS swayamsevaks extended their help in rescue and relief operations at various locations of the city. Alwal was one of the worst affected area. A lake in the area got overflowed resulting in water logging above the knee level at ten adjacent colonies and hampering the traffic movement on the main road. About 40 swayamsevaks from Alwal and Secunderabad Bhag participated in the relief operation. They distributed over 2,000 food and water packets. Some of them participated in controlling the traffic on Alwal main road from morning. In Nizampet Village, houses and parking areas in apartments were completely under rain water due to overflowing of nearby lake. Sensing this dangerous inflow of rain water into the lake, 150 swayamsevaks put 3,000 sand sacks to prevent sudden outflow of water or any leakages that may weaken the banks of lake. They worked round the clock along with local youth and administration to ensure that the overflowing lake was cordoned off and colonies are protected from heavy water logging.

Talking to mediamen on September 24 under the banner of Apna Sansthan, he said earlier the fruit bearing trees were available in plenty in every season helping the birds get food easily. But now the number of such trees has decreased and the birds have to travel miles in search of food. Sometimes they die in want to food. Therefore, it is time we all should work for environment protection by formulating specific plans.
