Kerala CM visits flood-affected regions
The Chief Minister of Kerala, Pinarayi Vijayan, is visiting flood-affected regions in the state, which has suffered the heat of the unprecedented rainfall. The leader of opposition, Ramesh Chennithala, and State Revenue Minister E Chandrasekharan are with the Chief Minister. The CM and his team are expected to conduct aerial survey in all affected regions and land in some worth-affected regions such as Idukki, Wayanad, Kozhikode and Ernakulam.
The team has started their official journey today from the state capital Trivandrum. As per a latest report, the team has had to give up their move to land in Idukki due to that place’s bad weather condition. The report says that the team is expected to reach Wayanad within few hours.
The Kerala has never experienced such a disastrous rainfall in the near history. The uncompromising rainfall has created floods, landslides and other rain-related disasters across the state. Though the disaster management team and district administrators have been startled by the unprecedented weather condition in the beginning, the state government, with the support of the National Disaster Management Team, Indian army and Costal Guards, has later managed to bring the situation under control.
The natural disaster has taken several lives in the state and left many injured. Tens of thousands of people have been shifted to the temporary shelters.
According to the weather experts, the state has not yet been completely released from the clutches of bad weather condition.
Several political parties and social organisations have directed their cadres to assist the government officials to help the affected.
Pray for Kerala!
