Rahul Gandhi Demands More Fund, Kiren Rijiju Says 'no Politics'
 
(New Delhi, Aug 17, 2018):Hours after Congress president Rahul Gandhi demanded more relief fund saying that the financial assistance of Rs 500 crore as Kerala flood relief fund is “nowhere near enough”, Union Minister Kiren Rijiju responded saying there should be any politics in the time of a disaster. He further mentioned the steps that have been taken for rescue operations.

“In time of disaster we all are one.. no politics please Hundreds of rescue teams aided by more than 90 Aircraft and 500 motorboats, NDRF, Army, Navy, Para-military forces are engaged in massive rescue & relief operations along with the government and people of Kerala,” he added in the tweet.

Rahul Gandhi on Saturday slammed the Rs 500 crore aid, which was sanctioned on Saturday after Prime Minister Narendra Modi conducted a high-level meeting with CM Pinarayi Vijayan and other officials, and said that the Centre should not vacillate as the people were suffering.

“Dear PM, increasing funds allocated for Kerala relief to Rs. 500 crore is a good step but nowhere near enough. It is critical you declare the floods as a National Disaster. Please do not vacillate as the people of Kerala are suffering,” Gandhi said in a tweet. Accusing Modi government of “playing politics” on the issue when Kerala people are suffering, spokesperson Surjewala said the financial assistance was “pittance”.

“Tragic that PM Modi announced a pittance of 500 cr for Kerala flood relief against the State’s demand of 2000 cr. Painful that Modi Govt is playing politics over flood relief merely because BJP has no presence in the state. Floods, human tragedy & unprecedented devastation can’t be subject matter of partisan politics as is being done by Modi Govt in Kerala,” he tweeted.
