Meanwhile, to and fro ferry services from Assam’s Majuli have been suspended indefinitely amid a concerning rise in the water levels of the Brahmaputra River, reports emerged on Thursday.
According to the reports, the decision to suspend ferry services in Majuli was taken in view of the safety of passengers. Also, the rising water levels of the Brahmaputra River has led to the ferry ramps getting completely submerged, prompting the decision from the authorities.
As per the Inland Water Transport Department, the decision will remain in force until the water levels subside below the danger levels.
