In the video, DM Samuel Paul could be heard telling the locals about a flood relief camp being set up in the area. “There is an arrangement to stay here. We will give you chlorine tablets. If you are facing any problems, the doctor will come and see you here. That is the purpose of a flood relief camp. Should we send you food if you are staying at home? The government is not running a Zomato service,” he said.

Paul also asked people that flood relief camps have been established within 500 meter or one kilometer, where toilet facilities, drinking water, medical health camps and other necessary arrangements are made. He requested people living in  low-lying areas to reach the flood relief camps. 

“‘The government is not running the Zomato service, which should do home delivery of relief supplies.’ DM Ambedkarnagar, Mr. Samuel Pal N tells flood victims. God only knows how many of these impoverished villagers are aware of the food delivery service the IAS officer mentioned,” a social media user wrote.

According to the UP government, over 1,300 villages in 18 districts of the state have been affected by floods due to heavy rainfall since Monday.
