Mamata to report to PM on post-cyclone Aila situation

National, Fri, 29 May 2009 IANS

Kolkata, May 29 (IANS) Railway Minister and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee Friday said she would submit a report to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on the post-cyclone Aila situation in West Bengal.


'I'll meet Prime Minister Manmohan Singh tomorrow (Saturday) and will report to him about the post-Aila situation in West Bengal,' Banerjee told a Bengali television channel, Star Ananda, over phone from the national capital.



'I'll discuss everything with the prime minister on how the relief materials are reaching to the cyclone-hit areas. I have got reports from our zilla parishad (district council) that the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M)-led state government is being partial and not distributing relief among people in the Sundarbans' villages.



'There's no food and drinking water for the past three days and people are almost starving to death,' Banerjee said, pointing out that Basanti, Pathapratima, Gosaba and Hingalganj are the worst-affected areas in the deltaic region.



She said the state government has no disaster management plan to combat any natural calamity.



'I've instructed our ministers and all party workers to reach out to cyclone affected areas tomorrow (Saturday) and help people in South 24 Parganas district who are in distress due to the devastating cyclone. A team, led by (Minister of State for Shipping) Mukul Roy, will also visit Gosaba tomorrow (Saturday) to help victims get relief from the state administration,' she said.
