The Chief Minister claimed that the Government of Maharashtra is yet to receive a total amount of around ₹38,000 crore from the Central Government
₹10,000 crore financial assistance has been given by Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray to the flood-hit people in the state, including farmers, on Friday.
The Maharashtra Chief Minister assured that the assistance will be provided by Diwali while speaking to reporters in Mumbai after holding a meeting with the key leaders of the ruling Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) on the flood situation.
Recently, Thackeray toured the flood-affected districts in western and central Maharashtra. The Maharashtra CM, along with other top ministers from his cabinet, visited villages that were hit by heavy rains in Solapur and met with district officials to take stock of the situation.
Harvest-ready crops on hectares of land were found destroyed in the torrential rains and flooding that occurred for more than four days in many districts of central and western Maharashtra.
Due to the rainfall and floods, in western Maharashtra alone, as many as 29 people lost their lives while 16 persons died in central Maharashtra’s Aurangabad division and three in coastal Konkan.
