My appreciations for the work young men are doing.

Indian or other airships should not take any charge for relief material. Talk to a responsible person there.

Whether the same can be purchased at Patna or other cities also enquire.

Dr.Dhankar,
Thanks so much.
chlorine or halogen tablets are not available at Patna, hence we are sourcing them frm elsewhre. As the flood water recedes,we will be facing a large no of diarrhea n other water bourne disease cases..hence precedence is for (chlorene) treated water.We hav distributed about 50 thousand tablets and wud be distributing 2.5-4 laks tablets this week.
Airforce is doing commendable job flying shorties in bad weather conditions.Slowly,the road links are being restored..and large scale distribution of relief material will be possible real soon.

cheers.
