Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Tuesday said her government will provide all necessary assistance, including food medicines and seeds, to the flood-affected people in the north, urging them not to worry.

The premier was addressing a view exchange meeting with public representatives, high officials of the government, political leaders and officials of the local administration at Sylhet Circuit House.
She held the meeting after inspecting from a helicopter the ravages wreaked by the early monsoon deluge in the districts of Sylhet, Sunamganj and Netrokona. She flew low to get a better view of the condition of the marooned people and the damages caused by the floods.

This is the third consecutive time that Sylhet region is experiencing floods, she said adding that the government is doing its part accordingly to face the situation.
