MS. SUSHILA TIRIYA (ORISSA): Mr. Vice-Chairman, Sir, I thank you for giving me the opportunity to participate in the Short Duration Discussion on the flood situation, which was raised by Shri Kalraj Mishraji. Sir, several times, the Business Advisory Committee has allotted time for discussion on the flood situation prevailing in our country. Every year, we discuss the situations arising out of natural calamities like floods, cyclones, earthquakes, drought and others. But, Sir, in my opinion, there has been no permanent solution to it.

As a representative of the people of the country and as a responsible citizen of this country, we always discuss these situations of flood, cyclone, drought etc. in this House. According to my knowledge as a representative from Orissa, every year, we discuss the flood situation in our country as well as the flood situation in the State of Orissa, to which I belong. My sincere request to the Government is to find out a permanent solution. Sir, after attaining Independence, we have made a lot of progress in these sixty years, and, our scientists have a lot of achievements to their credit, why don't you think of a permanent solution for this kind of natural calamity, which badly affects our country and its agriculture, and, which causes loss of lot of lives in the country. (Contd. by sk-3c)

MS. SUSHILA TIRIYA (CONTD.): Sir, basically, agriculture is the heart of this country. According to my thinking, in Orissa, we do not have a lot of employments and a lot of creamy layer of the society. We have people who mostly depend on agriculture. Every year this kind of floods damage a lot of agricultural land. Agriculture suffers means the economy of the country suffers. So, if some solution, some plan, some project or some scientific solution from our State Government is pending with the Central Government, my sincere request is to discuss the same and come out with certain progressive solution for my State. This year, U.P., Karnatka, Bihar, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Orissa, West Bengal and Assam are mostly affected States according to the newspaper and television reports. The Central Government has released an amount of Rs. 1.292 crores for these States. Specifically, for Orissa, for the period 2005-10, there is a proposal to release Rs. 1599.16 crores. For 2005-06, the Central Government has already given an amount of Rs. 301.54 crores. My point here is that those States are mostly affected in the current flood situation. But, the relief given is not sufficient in quantity. We are concerned about the relief. Sometimes the State Government throws some responsibility on the Central Government saying that the Central Government is not releasing that much of amount that they have asked for. They are not even able to give the relief to the affected areas. Every year, Mahanadi and Kathajodi, which are basically in central Orissa, affect the area a lot. Even if small quantity of rain falls, Mahanadi and Kathajodi rivers overflow causing floods. So, this area is affected a lot every year. People in this area have been suffering since long. Similarly, north Orissa is affected by Baitarani, Shubarnrakha and Budhabalang and south and west Orissa is affected by Bansdhara and Nagabali. In the Shubarnrakha and Budhabalang area, around 11 lakh people have been affected. Forty-three blocks, 11 districts and 62,000 people have been affected during the current year. The Revenue Minister from our State says that 196 makeshift kitchens have been opened to provide food for 62,000 affected people to give them some relief. My only suggestion is this. During the time of Shri Vinayak Acharya as Chief Minister, Dr. K.L. Rao was a scientist and also the then Irrigation Minister. He did a very good research and gave a suggestion on how to control the flood situation in Orissa. Now, the Orissa Government along with the Central Government has found some permanent solution and set up a project called the Geo Hydro Technique Project at Digha. If flood situation is controlled by the Geo Hydro Technique Project in Orissa, why don't the Central Government also go in for the same measure to deal with such situations? This is my suggestion. (Contd. by 3d-ysr)

MS. SUSHILA TIRIYA (CONTD.): My other point is this. Lots of livestock and human beings, some belonging to Below the Poverty Line, have suffered in the floods in Orissa. Orissa is a poor State. My point here is that if we resort to ad hoc measures every year, it cannot be a permanent solution. We only go on discussing it. We only ask the Central Government and the State Governments to give them some relief. This will continue for a long time. What should we then do? Here we have to discuss issues. Sushila Tiriya will participate from Orissa and others will participate from respective affected States. This will continue in Parliament and the State Assemblies. So my point is that this is the right time and the right situation to face the challenge of flood situation in the country. How to live with the floods; how to overcome this situation; and how to have a permanent solution for the floods in the country? So, my point here is that we should not go on discussing it again and again. I am emphasising this point. We have made developments in different fields, especially science. Why don't we encourage the scientists to conduct research and bring in proper measures to control this problem?

Orissa is a State of rivers. Lots of rivers surround Orissa. A time will come when Orissa will be washed out; according to the Census, population of Orissa will reduce and livestock will also reduce; and if the Central Government or the State Governments do some development work in that state, it will be meaningless. My request is to rebuild the embankment. Some of my colleagues have said that there are some weak points and from those weak points water will come out. When rain comes, it will damage the embankment and water will leak from that embankment and it will flood the region there. This is not my point that only weak points have to be repaired for the time being. Next year again we will face this kind of problem.

At Mahanadi basin, some research has been done. The Government of Orissa has got Mahanadi Basin Development Plan. It has been sent to the Central Government. If that is prepared and that is satisfactory, implement it to solve the problem of flood situation in Orissa.

My last point is, recently Rayagada is facing severe floods. There is a river valley which is washed out. The only remains of it include a defence bridge. Why don't we allow the people to use that bridge? The defence personnel are using that. Why don't we give them instructions to use that bridge for public purpose for the time being to meet the problems of the area until the damaged bridge is repaired?

Lastly, I can say one thing that we discus this issue and make some points. This is the situation when we should not do politics only. The engineers and contractors should not do politics during the prevailing flood situation of the country. (Contd. by VKK/3E)

-YSR/VKK-LP/3e/4.15

MS. SUSHILA TIRIYA (CONTD.): We should not play with the lives of the affected people, the poor people, the tribal people, the SC/ST people, the people living along river embankment, etc. We should stop playing politics on the sufferings of these affected people as we celebrate the sixty years of Independence. Thank you.

SHRI RAJEEV CHANDRASEKHAR (KARNATAKA): Sir, I thank you, very much for allowing me to participate in this discussion and put forward my views. Sir, as many of my senior colleagues in this House have said, and I join them in reiterating, the problem of floods in our country occurs almost every year and disrupts millions of lives and causes havoc and untold misery to those millions. Almost, every year, as a routine, we stand up and discuss floods and the Government responds with aid, grants and relief. A little late actually ever reaches the people affected by the floods and in many cases despite the Government aid and support, lives are irreparably damaged and destroyed. Sir, I will make my discussion in two parts. Firstly, I would like to summarise the impact of the floods and rains this year on my State, Karnataka and plead with the Central Government for financial support. Sir, my State has recorded very high rainfall this year, between June and August. The rainfall over the State between June and August has been the highest since 1870 and many districts including Koppal, Raichur, Bellary, Chitradurga, Belgaum, Bidar, Bagalkote, Bijapur, Hassan have recorded significantly high rainfall with many of these districts recording highest rain ever in the last 100 years. Sir, this has resulted in large inflows in major reservoirs and the huge release from these reservoirs have led to flooding, inundation and extensive damage to life, property, infrastructure, agriculture and crops. Sir, 43 lives have been lost and over 1,80,000 hectares of standing agricultural crops and 21,000 hectares of horticultural crops have been damaged with total financial damages estimated to be over 16,000 crores. This has been the cost of the floods to our State. Our State has already submitted a First flood memorandum of Rs. 400 plus crores to the Government and the Central study team has visited the State and submitted its report to the Government. However, the Central Government has not released any fund under the NCCF and have only released Rs. 23.70 crores under the CRF. I would urge, through you, Sir, that Government of India release funds to my State as expeditiously as possible. Sir, coming to the second part of what I wish to say, many Members in the House have said 'we visit and re-visit the floods every year' and given our country's geography, its many rivers and basins and the increasing impact of global warming, floods will naturally occur every year. I also agree with many Members and I reiterate, that despite this almost annual event, we do not seem to have any long-term plan to address the problem of floods. I believe, it would be very appropriate on the 60th year of our independence, if we develop a longer term and sustainable strategy to address this debilitating tragedy that visits our country every year. (Contd. by NBR/3N)

-SSS/NBR-MP/3N/4.55.

SHRI RAJEEV CHANDRASEKHAR (CONTD.): We owe it to our future generation that we leave behind some plan to address this annual problem. Sir, there are many variables -- excessive rains, indiscriminate construction of dams on rivers, encroachment of river banks and basins, erosion of river banks and increasingly evident phenomenon of global warming -- at play which creates this recurrent and annual occurrence of floods. So, there cannot be any simple or short-term solution to this.

Sir, I would like to, through you, make some suggestions to the Government as to what it can do for a long-term plan.

Firstly, the process of granting financial relief from the Centre to States should be completely restructured with the objective of ensuring speedier and more transparent financial resources to the affected State and its people. Removing, or, at least, reducing corruption in political partisanship during the process of allocating funds. One suggestion could be that the Government structure its various funds into one -- Central Government guaranteed line of credit -- and make them available to the States which are to be drawn during calamity in a transparent way and against the misuse of this line of credit. It is because, as we all know, there is a considerable misuse of Calamity Relief Fund.

Secondly -- a few hon. Members have also touched this point --we must improve the process of forecasting of floods. Better forecasting can and should save lives, which, today, seem to be the collateral damage of our lack of will to develop a new approach to handle floods. Our Meteorological Department must be given more resources and its forecasting techniques and equipment must be upgraded. In addition, either the Meteorological Department or an appropriate agency of the Government, like IRSA, should look at using technology to remote sense and survey all our rivers, basins, especially in flood-prone regions. There is also a need to create a modern and high technology database that can be the basis of planning and forecasting of floods in the future. Sir, technology can and should be used to reduce the impact by some forecasting.

THE VICE-CHAIRMAN (SHRI UDAY PRATAP SINGH): Mr. Rajasekhar, how much time are you going to take? I know this is your maiden speech. Therefore, I don't want to interrupt you. But, please conclude.

SHRI RAJEEV CHANDRASEKHAR: Sir, I will take only one minute.

Thirdly, Sir, the issue of interlinking of rivers must be looked at. The previous NDA Government had planned an ambitious Inter-linking of Rivers and Basins Project. There are no signs of this project anymore. It is not clear if the present Government has shelved this Project or modified it or is just ignoring it. Either way, I believe, it deserves a re-look and some form of inter-linking, even if it is in a smaller and more targeted way, at certain geographies will serve to rebalance peaking water surges during flood season. I would urge the Government, through you, to attempt to create a political consensus around this issue of inter-linking of rivers.

Fourthly, the States must focus on the three issues -- river bank encroachment, silting and erosion -- which contribute significantly to floods. This is squarely in the territory of State concerned. The Government of India must develop a plan to work with the States to encourage and give incentives, both in terms of funding and enforcement, to the States and Panchayats in this connection.

Finally, it is clear that our decades of abuse of environment and the on-going abuse of environment are causing global warming. The Government and, specifically, the Ministry of Environment and Forests, must get on top of this issue and give the nation a state of the factual report at the earliest which can be the basis for the country to start sensitising itself to the impact of abuse of environment on floods and other natural calamities. I would urge for a separate debate and discussion on this issue.

(MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN IN THE CHAIR)

To end, Sir, I reiterate, while the Government ensure the maximum effort to speed up relief and aids to the millions of displaced and flood-affected people, the Government must also, immediately, take the initiative to start the process of protecting our people from this annual occurrence of floods through a long-term and sustainable strategy. I urge all the political parties and hon. Members, who otherwise stand for the oppressed and downtrodden, to persuade the Government to launch this permanent long-term strategy to the whole issue of water and, in particular, flood prevention and protecting people from floods. I hope the Government will take the necessary steps in this regard. Thank you.

(Ends)
