BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari has slammed West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee for boycotting Prime Minister Narendra Modi's review meeting for Cyclone Yaas. He also said that Mamata Banerjee could not accept him as the Leader of the Opposition in the West Bengal assembly because he had defeated her in Nandigram.
While the country is facing the wrath of Cyclone Yaas, people in Delhi and Haryana are in a bad condition due to the extreme heat. But now it is a matter of relief that the weather in Delhi will change by this evening.
While Mamata Banerjee's office has claimed that she was asked to wait for PM Modi at the airbase, Centre has alleged that it was the Bengal CM who kept the Prime Minister waiting for about half an hour.
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has demanded a package of 10 thousand crores for the development of Digha and Sundarbans areas which are badly affected by the Cyclone Yaas from Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Out of the Rs 1,000 crore aide, Rs 500 crore would be given to Odisha for carrying out immediate relief work, said a statement issued by the Prime Minister's Office (PMO). The remaining amount would be disbursed to West Bengal and Jharkhand.
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee was also expected to attend the meeting. However, the West Bengal Chief Minister has decided to boycott the review meeting. She will return after handing over the paperwork of the damage caused by Cyclone Yaas to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Cyclone Yas has wreaked havoc in West Bengal and Odisha. PM Modi will take stock of the damage caused by Cyclone Yaas. Prime Minister Narendra Modi reached Bhubaneswar and held a meeting with Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on the impact of Cyclone Yaas.
Due to the power of Cyclone Yaas, the flood situation in West Bengal and Orissa has caused severe damage.
The impact of Cyclone Yaas is visible in many states. After ravaging West Bengal and Odisha, now Cyclone Yaas is causing heavy rains in Jharkhand.
Meteorologists say Cyclone Yaas will lose power overall today. But before that, there is a possibility of extensive rainfall in West Bengal and Orissa. Apart from Gangetic West Bengal, heavy rains have started in Purulia, Bankura and large parts of West Midnapore districts due to Cyclone Yaas.
