Rahul Meets Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan, Seeks Compensation for Flood-hit People of Wayanad
 
New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi met Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan here on Tuesday, during which he raised the issue of the floods in the southern state and sought an early resolution to the problems people were facing.

Gandhi was accompanied by party general secretary KC Venugopal and I C Balakrishnan, the Congress MLA from Sulthan Bathery that falls within his Lok Sabha constituency Wayanad.

Gandhi has also written to the Kerala chief minister regarding grant of a compensation package to the flood-affected people of Wayanad and for long-term flood mitigation measures such as embankments.

During his meeting with Vijayan, Gandhi also discussed the issue relating to night traffic ban on National Highway-766.

The Congress delegation also took stock of the post-flood relief-and-rehabilitation efforts initiated by the CPI(M)-led LDF government in Kerala and urged Vijayan to ensure a time-bound payment of compensations and roll out flood mitigation measures.

After the meeting, Gandhi said he discussed the flood situation in Kerala with Vijayan.

"I am not going to get into details, but basically we mentioned the flood situation and the need for quick compensation, the night travel ban and the troubles the people are facing there," he told reporters.

The former Congress chief said he told Vijayan that he wanted to give a sense to the government that this was a serious situation, which needed to be addressed urgently.

Asked about the chief minister's response, Gandhi said, "He said they are talking to the Centre and they are trying. He assured us that they are trying to resolve the issue. It is causing a lot of pain to the people of Kerala and Wayanad and I think it needs to be tackled at the earliest."

"You may consider setting up of early warning systems to alert populations in vulnerable areas and provide specially designed landslide/flood shelters with communication facilities in such places," Gandhi said in his letter to the CM.

"I hope that we collectively work towards ensuring a life of dignity for those struggling to re-build their lives. I extend my support to the state government in this endeavour," he said in his letter.

Gandhi also called for repair and upgradation of public infrastructure, particularly roads, saying floods have caused extensive damage to them.New Delhi, Oct 1 (PTI) Congress leader Rahul Gandhi met Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan here on Tuesday, during which he raised the issue of the floods in the southern state and sought an early resolution to the problems people were facing.
