Alphons and a high-level Central Team visited the flood affected districts of Alappuzha and Kottayam and reviewed the flood situation and relief measures undertaken by the Central and State Governments in the flood affected areas of Kerala.

Based on an aerial survey, field visit and interaction with the affected people, Shri Rijiju expressed satisfaction on the arrangements made by the State administration in managing the unprecedented floods in the State and in providing basic amenities, including food, water and medical service etc. in the rescue and relief camps. The Chief Secretary thanked the Central Government for deploying four teams of NDRF for search and rescue and assisting the administration in relief distribution.
