Liberation Central aid for flood damage, Stalin urges Modi
Tamil Nadu’s Chief Minister, Deputy Stalin, on Wednesday called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi to advise the Interior Ministry to release central aid for rain-related losses in the state.
Stalin, in a letter to Modi, said the monsoon rains and flooding in the northeast damaged homes, cultivated land and resulted in loss of life and livestock.
“The central team in charge of assessing damage due to incessant rains visited Tamil Nadu on November 21, 2021. for the permanent restoration of damaged infrastructure such as roads, bridges and public buildings, etc. “, did he declare.
The state’s financial situation was strained due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the flooding situation that followed only made it worse, Stalin added.
“State funds for disaster response have also been fully utilized. As you can agree, the affected people should be compensated at the earliest to enable them to overcome the current impact of the floods and also to rebuild damaged infrastructure so that transport, irrigation, education, etc., are back on track, “he said.
