CM: Feel Free to Use ‘104’ Flood Helpline
The chief minister held a video conference with the district collectors of flood-hit districts where he told them to consider village in the rural areas and ward in the urban areas as a unit to initiate relief works. He told them to give wide publicity to ‘104’ helpline number asking people to inform about any problem related to floods to that number and said officials should attend to those calls and respond immediately. He directed the officials of panchayat raj and municipal administration departments to finalise the tenders for permanent restoration works in next four weeks.
The CM asked the officials to provide a compensation of Rs 95,100 and sanction a new house to those who lost their homes and Rs 5,200 to those whose houses are partially damaged due to floods. He said 90 per cent compensation has already been paid to the families of those who lost their lives and instructed the officials to take measures to provide compensation to remaining families. Jagan instructed the officials to provide a compensation of Rs 25 lakh and a government job to the families of a constable in Nellore, a village secretariat employee and an RTC conductor, who lost their lives while helping others during the floods.
Jagan asked the officials to start crop enumeration and also to supply seeds at 80% subsidy and focus on ponds, reservoirs and embankments. He said a low pressure has re-emerged in the Bay of Bengal and is said to be heading south of Tamil Nadu and instructed the officials to be on high alert. He said government has sanctioned additional Rs 10 crore each to Kurnool, Chittoor, Anantapur and YSR districts totalling to Rs 40 crore for relief measures.
