People who stayed in houses of relatives will also be considered for aid: CM
Thiruvananthapuram: Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Wednesday said that the government will consider to give financial aid to people who have shifted to houses of relatives and people who moved to other places from their place based on authorities’ instruction due to flood. He was speaking to the media after holding a high level meeting in this regard.
People who stayed in relief camps but had not experienced any kind of loss also will be considered for aid. Benefits will be given only after strict examination. There are people who come to camps expecting financial aids. To avoid this, a detailed list of people who took refuge in camps will be made.
List of damaged things should be made when the house is cleaned. The responsibility for preparing the list is vested on village officer and local self-government secretaries. Aid will be based on the damages of houses and people who moved to relief camps. Respective officials should be able to make a report on that, said the CM.
There are attempts to defraud money from CMDRF at various levels. Strict action would be taken if any such attempts are identified. More publicity will be given to the website related details, said CM.
