Amit Shah invites Yediyurappa to Delhi to submit proposal for funds
By The Hindu 12-Aug-2019
“I will go to Delhi with senior officials,” Mr. Yediyurappa told reporters at Sambra airport in Belagavi on Sunday after Mr. Shah, who conducted an aerial survey of flood-hit areas in Belagavi, left for the national capital.
According to initial estimates, the total loss is ₹10,000 crore, as against the earlier estimate of ₹6,000 crore. “We have sought immediate release of ₹ 3,000 crore from the Centre,” the Chief Minister said.
“Officers are telling me that the [total] loss is around ₹10,000 crore. But looking at the devastation here, I feel that the loss is between ₹30,000 and ₹40,000 crore,” he said.
Responding to former Chief Minister Siddaramaiah’s estimation that the State had suffered losses running up to ₹1 lakh crore, Mr. Yediyurappa said the actual figures would be known only after a proper survey. He also said the Centre would take a call on declaring the floods a national calamity.
The CM said he would tour six flood-hit districts from Monday and meet affected families.
