In the meantime, former minister and Congress legislator Govind Singh dashed off a letter to Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan that the condition of the rain-rapped people worsened.

The rain has rendered hundreds of villagers roofless, Singh’s letter says.

He urged Chouhan to rescue the people marooned in Lahar assembly constituency.

Because of rising water level of the Sindh River, many villagers have taken shelter atop a mound where they have been without food for more than 24 hours, he said.
