The exodus continued as people were seen leaving the town together with their families and near and dear ones to be resettled at nearby Chhanera where basic facilities are being provided for their rehabilitation.

People should vacate the area soon in order to make the rehabilitation process a smooth affair." He said so far as many as 1188 families have been disbursed assistance under the special packages and more and more people are gradually joining the list of beneficiaries.
