In adjoining Assam, three people died in floods and landslides on Tuesday, taking the death toll in the state to 33 in the past 15 days. Mr Modi said he shared the pain of all those affected by floods and the entire nation stands with the people of Northeast during this time.

The Prime Minister said that the PMO is continuously monitoring the situation of Arunachal Pradesh and has assigned Principal Secretary to Prime Minister P K Mishra for the goal.

"The minister of state for home will lead a high-level central team tomorrow to supervise the rescue and relief operations in flood affected different parts of the North East", an official statement said here today.

Five persons were killed and nine went missing as a massive landslide triggered by incessant rains hit eight dwellings in Arunachal Pradesh's Papum Pare district yesterday.

The Prime Minister informed the CM that he has directed Union Minister of State for Home Affairs, Kiren Rijiju to visit Arunachal immediately to take stock of the situation. "Many people, including in Itanagar, have been shifted to safer locations", he said. Relief camps have been set up in affected areas and strict advisories have been issued to the general public to vacate from the vulnerable areas to the designated relief camps, Pema informed Modi.
