Rahul Gandhi Slams MODI

New Delhi, Aug 19: Congress President Rahul Gandhi has made sensational comments on Prime Minister Modi on the issue of Kerala Victims.

In this regard, Congress president on Saturday said the financial assistance of Rs. 500 crore announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi for flood-ravaged Kerala was "nowhere near enough" and said the calamity should be declared a "national disaster."

The party declared that all its elected representatives will contribute one month's salary for flood relief and accused Modi government of "playing politics" on the issue.

Hours after PM Modi sanctioned Rs. 500 crore to the flood-battered state, apart from Rs. 100 crore announced earlier by the centre on August 12, Mr Gandhi said that the centre should not vacillate as the people were suffering.

"Dear PM, increasing funds allocated for Kerala relief to Rs. 500 crore is a good step but nowhere near enough. It is critical you declare the floods as a National Disaster. Please do not vacillate as the people of Kerala are suffering," Mr Gandhi said in a tweet.
