Bengaluru: Karnataka Congress chief Dinesh Gundu Rao on Tuesday hit out at Union Home Minister Amit Shah for not announcing any relief package for the flood-ravaged state even after his aerial survey.
“Amit Shah does an aerial survey, doesn’t meet with the local leaders nor does he announce any package for Karnataka. We are facing losses ?50,000cr & the home minister doesn’t assure us anything. Disappointing. (sic),” Dinesh Gundu Rao tweeted.

Amit Shah on Sunday undertook an aerial survey of the flood affected areas of Karnataka. He arrived by a special aircraft from Chennai at the Sambra Airport in Belagavi and set out on the survey of some of the affected areas onboard an army helicopter, official sources said.
He is accompanied by Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa, union ministers Pralhad Joshi and Suresh Angadi, Rajya Sabha member Prabhakar Kore and Hukkeri BJP MLA Umesh Katti.
The unprecedented floods since last week have claimed many lives and forced more than 4 lakh people to leave their homes in 80 Taluks of 17 districts in Karnataka.
Almost all the rivers in the state are in spate.
The worst affected districts are Belagavi, Bagalkote, Vijayapura, Gadag, Uttara Kannada, Raichur, Yadigir, Dakshina Kannada, Udupi, Chikkamagaluru and Kodagu.
