ITANAGAR, July 9:  The Nyishi Elite Society (NES) has submitted a memorandum to  Chief Minister Pema Khandu, highlighting the severe hardships faced by the residents, officials, and students of Kurung Kumey District following the recent devastating flash floods. 
The floods have severely disrupted the region, washing away the Kurung bridge—a crucial lifeline—and blocking several vital roadways.
NES in its representation emphasized the critical need to restore the road from Nyobia Administrative Circle to Koloriang via Parsi Parlo. This alternative route is essential for the supply of food and healthcare commodities. NES urges the authorities to deploy necessary resources and allocate special funds for the rapid restoration of this road.
Additionally, the lifeline bridge over the Kurung River, which connects Koloriang, was washed away in the floods. Although the bridge abutment remains intact, immediate funds are required to rebuild the bridge and restore connectivity, added NES.
In light of the extensive damage to road connectivity, NES  further requested the initiation of contingency helicopter services to supply vital medicines, food commodities, and emergency medical services to the affected areas.
Meanwhile, NES also calls for the prompt allocation of an emergency relief fund to provide urgent assistance to the flood-affected people, addressing their immediate needs and mitigating their hardships.
