Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Tuesday (Jun 21) inspected the flood situation in Sylhet, Sunamganj, Netrokona and adjacent areas. The premier witnessed the flood situation for herself as the helicopter carrying her hovered over the affected areas maintaining the low fly mode.

Later, she landed at the Sylhet Osmani International Airport and then went to Sylhet Circuit house, where she is scheduled to hold a meeting with the divisional and district administration as well as local Awami League leaders, local media reported.

The government has allocated Tk 22.5 million cash, 400 metric tons of rice and 41,000 packets of dry and other foods as immediate humanitarian aid to deputy commissioners of flood-hit districts between 15 and 18 June, said a press release on Saturday.
