The Centre has sanctioned Rs 200 crore for reconstruction works in the four-flood-affected north-eastern states of Assam, Nagaland, Manipur and Mizoram. Minister of State for Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER) Jitendra Singh said the amount was sanctioned by the central government as the region has faced massive floods this year.

The north-east had witnessed unprecedented floods as a result of which the damage was colossal and the relief and rehabilitation operations were disrupted, he said in a statement here.

During his visit to the north-east in August to review the flood situation in the four states, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced a flood relief package of Rs,2000 crore.
