Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari on Tuesday asked the state government to convene a meeting of insurance companies to expedite the disbursal of claims for crop damage due to unseasonal rains, an official said.

Earlier in the day, leaders from the opposition NCP and Congress met him demanding a hike in the Rs 10,000 crore relief announced by the state government for farmers affected by loss of crops.

A memorandum submitted by NCP-Congress was forwarded by the governor's principal secretary Santosh Kumar to state chief secretary Ajoy Mehta, the official informed.

The governor's directive on the meeting of insurance firms was also conveyed to the CS, he added.
