Kochi, Aug 18 (DC): Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi, on Saturday August 18, conducted aerial survey of flood-hit Kerala where 324 people have died in last nine days.

PM Modi announced an interim relief of Rs 500 crore in addition to Rs 100 crore already announced.

Modi also announced an ex-gratia of Rs 2 lac per person to the next kin of the deceased and Rs 50,000 to those seriously injured, from Prime Minister's National Relief Funds (PMNRF).

According to reports, the aerial survey was cancelled on Saturday morning due to bad weather.

Kerala is witnessing one of the most savage monsoons in over a century with over 2 lac people being displaced since August 8.

PM Narendra Modi held a meeting with Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan, Union minister K J Alphons and other officials on Saturday morning.

The PM arrived at Kerala on Friday night.

Till now, 42 Navy, 16 Army, 28 Coast Guard and 39 National Disaster Relief Force (NDRF) teams were engaged in rescue operations. Another 14 NDRF teams are expected to reach shortly.

Last Sunday, Union home minister Rajnath Singh had undertaken and aerial survey of the flood-ravaged state and the centre had extended a Rs 100 crore package.

Thousands of people are still perched on trees and rooftops, waiting to be rescued.

    It is interim relief...... not the Final Amount.... Ministers are waiting like HAWK to grab the money..... we have seen how this money is used and how much is diverted to personal pockets of politicians earlier during Tsunami, Flood and Earth quake that occured in various parts of India.... Making fun on Govt. announcement shows the total bankruptcy of thinking in a positive way.... How much aid is coming from NGO's and Corporates is not known.... During cyclone in Gujrath how much money is released by UPA/Congress ? Compare that incident and check the steps taken by Govt..... NDRF /Army/Navy/Airforce is doing rescue operation and Hon,President is also keeping a watch on these activities.... never seen earlier when Congress GOVT ruling.... Dont politicise this issue just because BJP is at the centre....

    For all the crime man doing on Nature, Animals and Human beings in this world... Nature is teaching a lesson and thereby taking a revenge on Man's brutal act on mother Nature..... Cutting of Trees, Killing Animals, Spoling water Sources and Rivers, Ponds, Sea ... Air polution by factories etc are main reasons for this havoc caused in recent heavy rain and floods.... Wish man learns lesson from Nature and stop doing crime on it.... Govt., Armymen and Police do their duties to save the life of thousands who lost their house and family.... Hats off to their great service .... PM Modi too visisited Kerala same night on the day of our beloved Ex PM Vajapayee..... shows his dedication to serve the Nation and the needy people...

    Considering the magnitude of the disaster, 500 Crores sounds like Peanuts. There is hardly any magnanimity in this announement given the untold misery, widespread damage that the people of Kerala have faced in this deluge.

    First of all it is interim. Secondly such tragedies have taken place and will take place at many places in India. The Kedarnath tragedy was many more times in magnitude than what is happening in Kerala. The central government can only provide for all states equally. Main problem with people of our country is that they are underinsured. Even rich and well to do feel that insurance is an unnecessary expenditure. That has to change.

    Our prime minister is doing his best.. Let's join hands with him.. After releasing the fund, still we get some voice messages from Kerala accusing central government for not doing nothing to Kerala state. Even RSS members are helping in the flooded area.
    Dear people of Kerala... please stop accusing..concentrate on helping others who are suffering and pray keeping aside all jealousy, anger, hatred... Please have a mentality to appreciate a little favour also done to you by others. All are praying for you.

    In this situation no prime minister will have hatred towards you. You too are his people. Dubai, Abu Dhabi stand second. Try to live in peace..

    I am glad that this official picture PM Modi aerial survey is not doctored like Chennai Floods. Photoshop Information Bureau quickly deleted the post for the press release.

    We appreciate, NDRF teams who had rescued 194 persons & 12 livestock & evacuated 10,467 persons & provided pre-hospital treatment to 159 persons so far.

    Special thanks for BJP Maharashtra Minister Ravindra Chavan who had donated his one month salary to Kerala Floods relief, AAP MLA's and Congress MP's and MLA's who pledge the same.

    Prime Minister Modi, while visiting the disaster-stricken state of Kerala, grants an interim relief of 500 crores following the state government’s request. The state had demanded an immediate assistance of 2000 crores, to which the center has now responded with 500 crores. This fund is apart from the 100 crores granted earlier this week.

    When Gujarat struck with earthquake most of our media started collecting funds. I request them to do once more for humanitarian cause.

This is the reality Dr. Kamath. Hope you are not aware of release to BJP ruled states by this great PM. Why PM Modi not intervening in Mahadayi issue? Is it not because Goa is being ruled by BJP. Modi is supporting only BJP ruled states and fools still think that he is PM of all people.

    Jaimini..statues, foreign trips are the priority of BJP Government. Rs. 500 crore is nothing when you see the calamities and money spent on statues and advertisements. Whose money it is afterall? It's tax payers money and should be used for public and not for useless statues, self advertisements and unrewarding foreign trips. Look at the way governments in the Middle East are rushing their help to Kerala. This is not because of Modi but because of humanity and middle east countries know the contribution of Keralites in the middle east though Indian government sleeps over NRI issues. One nurse from Udupi died in Saudi Arabia and our government is not bothered and the body is still lying in Saudi Arabia but how come Sridevi's body came so early to India due to intervention of Central Government. You dumb don't understand the reality. You idiots think that BJP is protector of hindus but it's spoiling the name of hindus worldwide. I should not comment anything on economy and I know you are educated enough to know the reality of Indian economy now.

    2. It is not a donation, it is Keraliet's tax paid money and their rights. PM has to release the fund that's all.

This shows the reality of this government. You may be rich enough but mind you there are very poor people who can't even afford dal nowadays. Forget about full meals everyday. Money is being spent on self advertisements, foreign trips, visits to Pakistan uninvited, statues and what not. Clean Ganga is a big failure, swach bharat only our money is going for that and India is not becoming swatch. We don't need statues but people need food , clothing and shelter. Modi is supporting only big Industrialists like Ambani and Adani. During Modi's tenure small scale businesses all shut down. Come out of your house and see the reality. Communal tensions are increased after Modi came to power because these communal guys know that they are safe. Rapes and other crimes are also increased mainly due to BJP support and it's own MLA's/MP's are involved. We don't need UP Model which is filled with filth. We kannadigas know better what is required and what is not.

In coming months the current situation will change to drought and we the common people will again get affected with no water to drink.what needs to be done is collect the rain water as much as possible,use the tax payers money and built the best drainage possible(we are the same people from Indus valley civilization,when people of that civilization 2600bc could built proper drainage system,why cant we do now when we have the upper hand of technology and systems. Donot not allow the sewage water connect rivers before it gets treated and gods sake please do something about the roads and the infrastructure. Other wise this will continue we the common people will keep on dying and the government will be removing our tax money to pays us back as compensation, if we still be alive........think people of India think..........

    Great news that PM has surveyed flood hit Kerala and announced Interim relief of Rs. 500 crores. Now question here is where will this money go, how will it be utilized by whom and how effectively will it be reaching the actual needy & not the greedy.!!
    How I wish that amount spent by VIPs for these aerial surveys, visits, securities etc, this amount could also be included in relief funds, people in need would have benefited.
    Let us keep politics aside for once dear readers and look at things in human eyes, with empathy and concern towards our neighbors.

    Sitting is not important. His timely action is more important. It is not easy to work like Modi. With busy schedule. Morning he is full busy with funeral of ABV. Night he is in Kerala. If any other person they may think of rest. but he is action. He will see how to reach the amount to needy without middle man. it is sure do not worry.

    Ok , you do not want PM to help. I think you have to approach CM Mr, P Vijayan who is in charge of your state as your tax is collected at state level. Put up your demands with him , that should be your first step. Please be advised that when Keralites are struggling for survival in the floods, CPIM Minister Raju & IMUL MP who were ideally supposed to coordinate with the Kerala Flood relief team are on a sabbatical to Germany to celebrate Onam. Why Keralaites are silent on this? These typical Modi bashers, when their rear ends are on fire, They want Modi to help them.

    Sandhya...Modi is not taking anything out from his pocket. It' s tax payers money and should be used for public welfare and not for bloody statues, advertisement and useless foreign trips. Come to your senses before you write anything. Why Modi is showing partiality when releasing relief? Why BJP ruled states always get more than required? Is it not because Kerala is ruled by non BJP government? If Central Government doesn't want to help, then it does't have right to collect any tax of any sort. See the gratitude from Middle East Countries and other countries. Only Indian government is playing politics here.
