“That’s the best picture I’ve seen in a while. We need more officers like him. Always felt the north eastern people had something more to offer to the society,” tweeted one user.
The photo featuring the IAS officer was first posted on Twitter by Manipur chief minister N Biren Singh, who is also supervising the repair work on river banks that were damaged due to the downpour.
Torrential rains in the past 48 hours have wreaked havoc in northeastern states, claiming four lives in Tripura and Manipur, disrupting rail services in Assam and rendering thousands homeless across the northeast region.
Take a look at some of the reactions on Twitter
