Kerala floods – Hike central aid to Rs 2,000 crore – Sitaram Yechury to PM Modi!

Arguing that the flood relief of Rs 500 crore announced by the Centre for Kerala was “grossly inadequate”, CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury on Tuesday wrote to PM Narendra Modi asking the government to increase the assistance to Rs 2,000 crore and seek the help of United Nations’ aid agencies for rebuilding homes in the state.

Yechury wrote that massive resources would be required for rehabilitation of people. He demanded that “substantial funds” be released under Pradhan Mantri Awaz Yojana for building homes, deployment of personnel of NHAI and other central agencies to help rebuild communication networks and waiver of duties on medical equipment sent by organisations abroad
