CM’s Yaas package lacks clarity: BJP

Saturday, 12 June 2021 | PNS | BHUBANESWAR

Responding to the compensation packages announced by Chief Minister Naveen Patanik for Cyclone Yaas-hit farmers on Thursday, the BJP on Friday alleged that the package lacks clarity.  Party leader and former Revenue Minister Manmohan Samal said the CM declared the package basing on handwritten reports of officials whereas the ground situation is something different.  He demanded that the list of beneficiaries be made public in GP offices and all left-out affected families be included without delay.

Samal said that while more than Rs 1,700 crore is available in the Flood Damage Report (FDR) account, the Government has not properly outlined it.

 It is the duty of the Government to announce in public domain about the works undertaken under the FDR. While demanding to complete the restoration and recovery works on a war footing, he said the CM has neither announced specific compensation for fish and prawn farmers nor timeline for draining out saline water from agricultural fields and repairing of cyclone shelters.

 “Still 50% restoration of electricity and water supply has not been done and there is no specific announcement on developing mangroves in the coastal belt, which could have protected the region from cyclones and floods,” said Samal.
