With Assam, Bihar and other NorthEast states facing one of the worst spells of floods in recent times, several cricketers took to Twitter and urged people to support the affected regions.

While Harbhajan Singh requested the citizens to provide assistance in whatever way they can, R Ashwin pointed out the damage caused due to severe floods and drought prevailing in various parts of the country.

Rohit Sharma, meanwhile, appealed the people residing in Assam to be cautious while driving through the Kaziranga belt as the national park is completely submerged underwater and animals are forced to take shelter on roads.

Here are the reactions: 

Meanwhile, ace sprinter Hima Das on Tuesday donated fifty percent of monthly salary in Assam Chief Minister’s relief fund. As per the latest reports, at least fifteen people have lost their lives in the current spate of floods in Assam, while lakhs of people have been displaced.
