Amaravati: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy chaired a meeting with six district collectors of flood-affected areas on Monday and reviewed the relief works. Eluru, East Godavari, Alluri Sitarama Raju, Dr BR Ambedkar Konaseema and West Godavari districts have been severely affected by floods, affecting more than one lakh people.

The Chief Minister instructed officials to provide Rs. 2,000 to all households within two days. In addition, the flood-affected households will be provided 25 kg rice, jaggery, potatoes, onions, and palm oil. "Distribution of ration should be intensified in every affected village. Relief programs should be taken up on a war-footing," he said.

Noting the loss of crops, especially with the Kharif season just beginning, Jagan ordered officials to estimate crop and property damage within 10 days of the flood water receding. "Move pregnant women to hospitals if needed. Ensure availability of medical officers and specialists. Infections due to floods are common and can prevail. Keep strict vigilance on the diseases. Continue chlorination in all the affected areas and provide clean drinking water to all these areas," the CM told the health department officials.
