PM Modi’s aerial survey of flood-affected areas cancelled due to bad weather
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who was scheduled to take an aerial survey in Kerala’s Kochi this morning, could not do so due to heavy rain fall. He is now holding a meeting with Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan and Union Minister K.J. Alphons.
Modi had to take stock of situation in Ernakulam, Pathanamthitta and Alappuzha districts, which are the worst affected so far.
324 people have died and several hundred others injured, as Kerala is hit by the worst floods in a century.
Though rain has receded, the threat of landslips and flooding still hovers.
