"My thoughts are with our brothers and sisters in Assam facing unprecedented floods. Heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families," Gandhi said on Twitter. "I urge Congress workers and leaders to continue extending assistance to rescue & rehabilitation operations," the former Congress chief said.
