Odisha Gets Notice Over Relief Not Reaching Parts Of Cyclone-Hit Areas

The National Human Rights Commission has issued a notice to the Odisha government over reports that relief material is "not reaching" the affected people in some parts of Puri and Khurdha districts, worst hit by Cyclone Fani.
The Right Commission observed that it understands the state administration, in collaboration with central agencies and NGOs, is trying to cope with the situation, but there seems to be a necessity to identify areas which require immediate relief and rehabilitation.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, the rights panel said it has taken "suo motu cognisance of a media report that people are facing hardship, and are agitated that relief material is not reaching to cyclone-hit people in some parts of Puri and Khurdha districts of Odisha".
Thousands of cyclone-affected people, reportedly struggling to get food and water, came out in the streets on May 7. The police resorted to lathi-charge to disperse the protesters, the report said.
The commission said it understands the difficulties being faced by the residents of the affected areas, which going by the media reports are Puri and Khurdha districts.
