Bengaluru: Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa on Tuesday said a central team was visiting the flood-hit areas to assess the damage, and that he will also be going to New Delhi to seek more relief from the Centre.

“In three teams, the central team is visiting flood-affected areas, our officials are also with them, after doing the survey, they will meet the Chief Secretary,” Yediyurappa said.

Speaking to reporters here, he said last evening he had detailed discussion with the central team members on the destruction caused by floods in the last three successive years and have given a memorandum to the Centre through them.

“Looking at the report they submit to the union government, I will go to Delhi and try to get more relief,” he said, adding he has yet to decide on the travel dates.

Karnataka has suffered a loss of Rs 8,071 crore due to the recent floods, Yediyurappa had on Monday informed the six-member inter-ministerial central team (IMCT) headed by Ministry of Home Affairs Joint Secretary K V Pratap.

He also said that the guidelines for providing relief under State disaster response fund and National disaster response fund need to be revised this year and requested the Centre to revise it immediately and release more funds to help people in distress.

More than ten districts of the state were affected by floods this year.

Heavy rainfall since August 1 has killed at least 20 people, displaced thousands, damaged more than 10,000 homes and crops in about 4.03 lakh hectares, and wrecked 14,182 km of roads.
