BRAVING the fury of floods in Haryana, the RSS volunteers penetrated into inaccessible and totally submerged areas to provide affected people with relief material in the form of drinking water, food packets, medicines, etc. and shifted them to relief camps to provide them temporary shelter till the flood water receded. Fired by humanitarian zeal, they spared no effort to provide them succour to restore normal life. Their role was laudable and commendable by all standards. Everybody has praised the dedication and devotion of the volunteers. The main centre of the relief remained Gita Rangam Sangh Karyala, Kurukshetra. The volunteers not only cooked food for the victims, but also visited different villages to collect essentials for the flood victims.
