Senapati: Incessant rainfall in the past few days has caused landslides in many parts of Senapati district in Manipur.

At least 10 villages along the Maram-Peren road 129A are in a sticky situation after multiple landslides occurred along the stretch in the last few days.

As per local residents, apart from multiple landslides in the area, a major landslide at YangKhullen village on Tuesday has totally cut off the neighbouring villages.

On Thursday, vehicular movement had resumed but it was extremely slow as the authority concerned continued to clear the roads, said a local resident.

Reports of sporadic floods and landslides were also reported from Jiribam, Noney and Tamenglong districts of Manipur.

Moreover, vehicular movement along the Imphal-Jiribam highway remained suspended after a Bailey bridge collapsed in Noney district.

Water level of major rivers in Imphal valley and other parts of the state are also reported to have reached their flood levels.

On Wednesday, Bishnupur district deputy commissioner issued a flood alert owing to the continued downpour.

Earlier, Chief Minister N Biren Singh also made a spot visit at Imphal river. Singh assured that the state government is monitoring and preparing to provide relief assistance to the public.

The CM has also urged the public to avoid blocking the drainage system which causes artificial floods.
