Central team to be sent to Maharashtra to assess damage caused to crops due to unseasonal rains: HM Amit Shah

Union Home Minister Amit Shah has said that a central team will be sent to Maharashtra to assess the damage caused to crops due to unseasonal rains in parts of the state.

A statement issued by Raj Bhavan said in Mumbai that Mr Shah has conveyed this to Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari. The statement said that the Centre’s response came after the governor called up Mr Shah to apprise him about the damage to crops caused by floods and unseasonal rains in Maharashtra in the recent weeks.

In a related development, a delegation of Shiv Sena leaders met Mr Koshyari yesterday and sought his intervention in providing relief to farmers and fishermen affected by the rains.
