Cyclone Fani: Maha to give Odisha Rs 10 cr

Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis Sunday said his government will contribute Rs 10 crore to Odisha for relief and rehabilitation measures post cyclonic storm Fani.

'Fani' barrelled through Odisha on Friday, unleashing heavy rain and winds of up to 175 kmph, killing at least 29 people, blowing away thatched houses and swamping towns and villages.

"Maharashtra stands firm with the people of Odisha. The state government will contribute Rs 10 crore towards the relief and rehabilitation measures in different parts of Odisha affected by cyclone Fani," he said.

The Odisha government has mounted massive restoration work across 10,000 villages and 52 urban areas ravaged by the storm, affecting nearly one crore people.
