Hyderabad: Twitter is flooding with praises for the IAS officer from Warangal, Keerthi Jalli working as the deputy commissioner of Cachar district in Assam for her inspection of the flood-hit district. In the viral photos, Keerthi can be seen walking barefoot on a muddy path taking stock of the destruction.

On Wednesday, Keerthi Jalli inspected the flood-affected areas of Chesri gram panchayat, Chutrasangan village under Borkholo Dev block, on foot where she interacted with the people to understand their problems. She directed the officials concerned to put in place all measures to protect the land from flood and erosion. Later, she distributed relief items among the flood-affected people. She also inspected the relief measures, including provisions for pure and safe drinking water for the flood-affected people in relief camps and other places.

Twitteratis also appreciated Keerthi for her simplicity and dedication.


Appreciating her efforts, Assam MLA Karim Uddin Barbhuiya tweeted, "This is an appreciation tweet for @dccachar, Smt. Keerthi Jalli, IAS. Her eagerness to work for the people has no limits. The way she visited the remotest flood affected areas, taking stock of the damage and understanding and suffering of the people deserves huge respect."

Keerthi Jalli, who joined the Indian Administrative Service in 2012, took over as the deputy commissioner of Cachar district in May 2020. Assam is reeling under the impact of incessant rains and floods for the last few weeks. Cachar, with a population of 1.63 lakh people spread over 291 villages, is one of the worst affected districts after Nagaon, according to the district disaster management authority.
