Kerala Floods: Uttar Pradesh,Haryana helps Victims

New Delhi, Aug 18: Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Saturday said the state would provide a financial assistance of Rs 10 crore to flood-affected people and for rescue operations in Kerala.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Saturday said the state government will donate Rs 15 crore to help the flood-affected victims in Kerala.

The people of Kerala have been facing heavy losses of life and property due to severe floods and Haryana is with Kerala in this hour of need, an official statement quoting Khattar said.

Overflowing rivers and a series of landslides have caused the death of 180 people as of Saturday morning, with over three lakh people forced to move to some 2,000 relief camps.

Adityanath said the state will also send medicines and relief material to Kerala. He also exhorted social groups, non-government organizations and others to come forward to help people of Kerala, who have been severely affected by incessant rains that have triggered unprecedented floods.

"The state government and people of Uttar Pradesh stand by the people of Kerala in these testing times and would extend all possible help at this hour of crisis," the Chief Minister said.
