Prime Minister Narendra Modi today approved Rs 50,000 relief fund each for all victims, who were injured in Ghatkopar building collapse in Mumbai on July 25. PMO India tweeted today, “PM has approved Rs 2 lakh each for the next of kin of those who lost their lives due to a building collapse in Ghatkopar, Mumbai.” Around 17 people lost their lives in the Ghatkopar building collapse. Along with this, Prime Minister Modi also announced relief funds for victims of the Assam and Rajasthan floods. While Rs 2 lakh each has been announced for the next of kin of those who have lost their lives in the floods in Assam and Rajasthan. Relief of Rs. 50,000 each has been announced for those who have been seriously injured in the floods in Assam and Rajasthan, the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) said

The state of Assam and Rajasthan witnessed widespread destruction and loss of lives due to the recent floods. Apart from the announcement of relief funds, the Prime Minister is expected to visit Assam soon to get a first-hand assessment of the flood situation. The PM’s proposed visit to the state comes close on the heels of strong reactions in Assam after he preferred to visit flood-affected Gujarat over Assam despite the fact that more than 80 people have lost their lives and several thousand houses were damaged in the state, according to an Indian Express report.

Here are the tweets by PMO India-

Former Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi’s son Gaurav Gogoi, who is also a Lok Sabha member, on Thursday took to Twitter and said, “Both Gujarat and Assam should have got aid. But election-bound states matter more. BJP calculates to help people on the basis of votes.”

The flood in Assam has damaged over 3000 houses, excluding the partially damaged 23,000 houses in 29 districts in the past two months. A preliminary assessment by the Assam government earlier in the week had put the flood damages at Rs 2939 crore.
