As the region was hit by deluge earlier this month, lakhs of people were affected and the district administration chose government schools to temporarily shelter them. In Belagavi educational district, 91 out of the 164 such schools were vacated by Wednesday evening. However, 73 schools still continue to house flood victims.  

A Gangadhar, In-charge Deputy Director of Public Instruction of Chikkodi, said sweets will be distributed to the flood victims too during celebrations.
