Appeal for voluntary donations to help the flood victims :

Dear Comrades,
You are quite aware that  19 districts of Odisha have been seriously affected due to the  high flood in Mahanadi and many  other rivers namely  Luna, Karandia, Chitrotpala, Brahmani, Devi, Kathajodi, Daya, Bhargavi, Kushabhadra, Dhanua, Rajua etc. The flood situation   has been worsened   affecting more than 10 lakh people in 2,550 villages . Thousands of houses  in such  districts have been damaged by the floods. With flood waters entering low laying areas, 75000 people in such  districts have been  evacuated and provided shelter in safe places in the mean time.  The situation is critical in the district of  Angul, Balasore, Bargarh, Bhadrak, Boudh, Cuttack, Jajpur, Jagatsinghpur, Jharsuguda, Kendrapara, Kurda, Mayurbhanj, Nayagarh, Puri, Sambalpur and Subarnapur.
Thus, it is quite evident that the post offices and postal employees of these areas are also affected.
          Today morning I myself have  collected reports from our colleagues working in several post offices of Nimpara, Konark, Nayahat, Rench, Astaranga area under Bhubaneswar Postal Division. There are reports of inundation of the road to Konark Sun Temple due to a breach in river Bhargavi in Puri district. There is also a breach near Kusupur in Kushabhadra river. The sub urban area of Gop is submerged with flood water including the post office building.  Similar is the situation from Pipli to Nimapara, Pipli to Jatani, Khurdha to Nayagarh, Balakati to Nimapara and  Rench to Balanga. The mail van carrying mails of such areas to Bhubaneswar GPO could not come yesterday.  It is apprehended that   situation may be  critical as excess water from the rivers  will not be released into the sea easily due to the full moon on Monday
I have personally discussed the situation with our SSPOs over telephone today evening requesting him to appraise the Chief PMG, Odisha Circle for providing immediate  necessary assistance from the Circle Welfare Fund to the flood victims of Bhubaneswar Division, which, according to the SSPOs may take some time since to be done officially. Accordingly, we   have decided to arrange for providing immediate relief to the flood victims of Bhubaneswar Division , possible if any within our competency  taking the assistance of all the employees  to raise some funds for the purpose locally.
As such, I would like to appeal earnestly all of you to donate voluntarily  for the purpose as quick as possible since any kind of delay will defeat the very purpose.
Your donations may be handed over personally to  / remitted through eMO in the following address:
Sri Lingaraj Sahoo
Treasurer, AIPEU, Group-C, Bhubaneswar Division  &
APM, Bhubaneswar GPO – 751 001.
Waiting for your kind assistance.
With regards.
B. Samal
            Divisional Secretary.
