Vijayan blames centre, announces special package
 
(Thiruvananthapuram, Dec 6, 2017, DG): Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Wednesay blamed the centre for failing to issue a warning about the Cyclone Ockhi.

He was speaking to media persons in a press conference.

"The Meteorological Department informed on November 30 that the low pressure may turn into a depression, But, there was no mention of a cyclone", he said.

He added that after receiving the warning on November 30, the disaster management authority was alerted in no time and warnings issued to navy, coast guard and army. But, fishermen had already ventured into the sea by this time.

Pinarayi also announced a compensation package for the relatives of those dead in Cyclone Ockhi. Their children will be given free education and job training. Rs.5 lakhs will be given to those who are injured seriously.

The free ration being given in coastal areas will be extended to one month. Adequate financial help will be given to those fishermen who lost their boats and nets. A special committee will be formed to decide the aid to be given to the kin of missing fishermen.
