Panaji With the rains subsiding in the State, Goa chief minister Pramod Sawant told reporters on Friday that the normalcy would be restored in next two days.

Sawant said that the teams of diaster management authority are working round the clock to help to get normalcy restored, while it will take little time before everything is sorted out.

Several people had to be evacuated after the coastal state faced incessant rain for seven days flooding the low-lying areas. The chief minister said that three talukas of Pernem, Bicholim and Bardez were affected due to the floods.

“We have taken all the necessary steps for flood relief with all the departments getting involved in the process. The rains have subsided for now but it will take at least two days to restore the normalcy,” he said.

The chief minister said that at several places the trees have fallen down while several stretches of the road have been washed out.

Sawant said that State Ports minister Michael Lobo has already given a cheque of Rs five lakh towards chief minister’s relief fund. He appealed the people to contribute for it so that it can help the restoration work.
