In the meantime Amo appealed everyone to refrain from going to the rivers especially Pare/Dikrong and nearby tributaries for any kind of purpose or work and not to take bath as these days due to incessant rain the rivers are flowing above danger level.
Further all parents in the capital areas are requested not to allow their children from going to river for swimming or picnic as all the rivers are dangerous and swollen up with very strong currents. Moreover, large amount of water is released from Ranganadi Hydro Plant to Pare river causing instantaneous sudden rise in water level and has drowned many persons in last few years.
