Mind-numbing cold has gripped Kharibari Block and the country’s border areas, leaving the people to ferret around for extra measures to keep themselves warm in the weather.
Fewer vehicles are also being witnessed on the roads as the thick blanket of fog has made it difficult to travel. Visibility issues are such that it is tough to even see at a good distance.
The residents of the area are now demanding balefires to shield themselves from the cold. The people are also finding it no short of a challenge to carry on with the basic of their duties because of the extreme weather. The only relief is when the sun shines through in the afternoon for a couple of hours.
