Guwahati: Home minister Rajnath Singh Saturday went on an aerial survey survey of the flood-affected areas in Assam, where the death toll has climbed to 25.

Accompanied by chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal, Singh began an aerial survey of flood-affected areas in Nagaon, Morigaon and Kaziranga, an official said.

The home minister, who reached the state capital on Saturday, also met the inmates of a relief camp at Bhakatgaon in Morigaon district.

He will later hold a high-level meeting with Sonowal, ministers of state departments concerned and senior government officials.

The home minister is scheduled to leave for the national capital in the evening, the official said.

Twenty-five people have lost their lives and nearly 19 lakh have been affected across more than 3,300 villages in 22 districts in the state.
