The former JK chief minister Omar Abdullah who made no peace with September floods last year by admitting it as one of his setbacks as chief minister Monday hoped and prayed against the return of September floods.

“It is true that water of river Jhelum has crossed the danger mark,” he said. “But, there is a huge difference in the water levels of September and now.”

I hope and pray, he said, that we don’t have to face the same situation we faced in September.

“Till now there is no loss to communication and the roads are open,” he continued. “The same officers who helped in September are doing it today as well. From the lessons learnt in September we can act better today.”

I would appeal, he said, to take help of experience of all the officers who helped in September floods.

“Even if some of them have retired, their experience can be of great help,” he said.

Earlier in the day, the state government has issued a flood warning following incessant rainfall resulting in rise in water level of Jhelum River.
