Bengaluru: Former Chief Minister Siddaramaiah accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of ignoring Karnatka at the time when heavy rains and floods have wreaked havoc in the state.

Taking to twitter Siddaramaiah said, “None of the previous governments or Prime Ministers, including Atal Bihari Vajpayee, had ignored Karnataka during natural calamities. But the attitude of Narendra Modi towards Karnataka and B S Yediyurappa, in spite of 25 MPs, is disgraceful. We Kannadigas shall never tolerate this callous attitude.”

The toll in rain-related incidents in flood-hit Karnataka went up to 65 on Friday with the recovery of three more bodies even as relief and rehabilitation work is underway, officials said on Friday, August 16. While 14 people are still classified as missing, nearly seven lakh people have been evacuated till date.

The state government said inflows into reservoirs have reduced and the situation has improved in affected districts of north, coastal and Malnad regions, where the rain fury had created mayhem in the last couple of weeks.

North Interior Karnataka received light to moderate rain in the past 24 hours, while Coastal and Malnad received widespread with moderate rains and at isolated places heavy rains, an official release said.

The Karnataka State Natural Disaster Monitoring Centre (KSNDMC) forecast said light to moderate rains are most likely over North Interior Karnataka for the next three days, while Coastal and Malnad region are most likely to receive widespread with moderate rains and at isolated places heavy rains for the next two days.
