Karimnagar: Some 39 members, of which nine migrant labourers from a brick kiln and seven Singareni workers including two life boat drivers and 23 residents of Ganganagar were stranded in the floodwaters due to heavy rains in erstwhile Karimnagar district in the past two days.

With the overflowing of water from Erukulla wagu and heavy rains, the Vallampadu and Theegalaguttapalli villages were submerged in the flood waters. Around nine migrant labourers from Odisha state working in a brick kiln in Vallampadu village were stranded. They sent an SOS to the locals.

The BC Welfare minister along with district collector Karnan rushed to the spot with NDRF teams and rescued the migrant labourers. They were shifted to a rehabilitation centre.

Five members of Singareni --Kanakam Lakshmaiah, Doddapalli Sammaiah, Sangam Rajamouli, Sailu and Kumar -- who went to work in the filter bed on Wednesday were stranded in the floodwaters.
