The release of water from brimming dams has exacerbated the flooding in West Bengal after Cyclone Komen struck the east coast on Friday, Khan said.
Many states including Gujarat, Rajasthan, West Bengal and Manipur have been facing the adverse effects of the flash floods. As many as 36,90,627 people in the state have been hit.
In the far western state of Gujarat, the death toll from floods has reached 53, after more drownings, electrocutions and other incidents.
Flooding has affected millions in India, officials say. Two teams of the NDRF have been earmarked for rescue and relief operations in the village.
Flood waters submerged parts of Imphal West district as well as Uripok, Sagolband, Lamphel, some portion of Kwairamban bazar yesterday, sources said, adding that water level on all major rivers in Manipur is, however, receding as rains stopped since yesterday.
“Beyond the immediate impact, the floods will have a longer term impact on the livelihoods of these families”, she warned.
“Bengal is suffering because of DVC as water is overflowing”.
Over 2.14 lakh people have taken shelter in over 1,500 relief camps.

Manipur is said to be suffering from its worst floods in at least three decades, in which an estimated one 100000 people have been affected.
More than 630 people have been rescued from various districts in Rajasthan. “Another 150 villagers are still stuck and the army is carrying out rescue operations”, said Burdwan district magistrate Soumitra Mohan.
