Fulfill promises made to flood victims: MLC Ivan D’Souza to CM

Mangaluru: “Yediyurappa has shown genuine concern towards the flood affected people. But the government officials have not been obeying the government’s instructions,” complained MLC Ivan D’Souza and demanded the fulfilling of the promises made by chief minister B S Yediyurappa, relating to flood relief in Dakshina Kannada district. He also asked the government to issue suitable directions to the officials in this regard.

The MLC pointed out that although the CM has directed disbursement of compensation to people in relief centres at the rate of Rs 10,000 per person, the officials, duly abiding by the National Disaster Relief Fund rules, have been issuing cheques amounting to only Rs 3,800 each. This clearly shows that the officials have been overlooking the directions of the CM, he said.

Referring to the instruction issued by the CM to disburse compensation of five lakh rupees for houses which have been completely destroyed Ivan said that there were confusions in it. “MP Shobha Karandlaje, by speaking about releasing Rs 92,100 to the affected people in the first phase, has given rise to confusion. Congress party has already urged the CM to announce package on Kodagu model for the suffering people. The chief minister has spoken about announcing a new package that is applicable for the entire state,” informed the MLC.

Speaking of the rule which states that to be eligible for compensation for cattle which were washed away in floods, the veterinarians have to perform postmortem and issue report the MLC said that there was confusion regarding this as the farmers cannot retrieve the animals which were washed away. The MLC therefore asked the CM to be practical in issuing instructions and make sure that the orders issued by him can be implemented.
