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:
Plz help?? In Assam, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Tripura and Mizoram flood situation has become uncontrollable. These states need support. Request all to contribute in whatever way you can
