Odisha Government set an example for others seeking no immediate financial assistance from the Centre for the State ravaged by Cyclone Yaas

Bhubaneswar:28/5/21: In view of the current crisis the country is facing due to COVID-19 pandemic, Odisha Government set an example for others seeking no immediate financial assistance from the Centre for the State ravaged by Cyclone Yaas.

Following a review meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on damage assessment caused by Cyclone Yaas in Bhubaneswar today, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik informed that the State Government will manage to overcome the challenges post-cyclone without putting additional burden on the Union Government. However, the State Government urged the Centre for long term measures for Odisha, which is facing natural disasters every year.

At the review meeting during PM’s visit to Odisha in aftermath of Cyclone Yaas, Patnaik apprised Modi about large scale devastation caused by the disastrous cyclone and steps taken by the State Government ahead of the cyclone as well as the ongoing restoration efforts in the cyclone-battered districts.

Speaking to media after the meeting, Special Relief Commissioner Pradeep Kumar Jena said, “We have not demanded any kind of assistance to the Centre for this year’s cyclone. The Union Government will be informed about the damage incurred in the State due to the cyclone after report submitted by the district authorities in a week.”

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today visited Odisha to review damages caused by very severe cyclonic storm Yaas that ravaged as many as 10 coastal districts on May 26.

Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik, Union Ministers Dharmendra Pradhan and Pratap Sarangi, Chief Secretary Suresh Chandra Mahapatra, SRC Pradeep Jena and DGP Abhay were present at the meeting in Bhubaneswar. Later, the PM undertook an aerial survey for damage assessment.
