Mandi: Himachal Pradesh Disaster Management Authority vice-chairman Rajendra Rana visited the flood-hit areas in Dharampur in Solan district.
Rana was here to review the progress of the restoration works but his visit to the locality was more like a casual trip.
Local administration officials engaged in relief work left their job and carried Rana on their back to make him speak with officials of the district administration.
Four persons including three members of a family were dead as flash floods triggered by cloudburst wrecked havoc in Dharampur area of Mandi district.
Rajender Rana, independent MLA from Sujanpur (Hamirpur) had resigned last year to contest Lok Sabha poll against sitting BJP MP Anurag Thakur on Congress ticket.
