"Prime Minister announced Rs 1000 crore for the emergency fund but he didn't clarify whether it'll be advance or a package.

He said he'll decide later on but he said it may be advance also.

I said whatever you will give you decide, we'll give you details.

We have to help people so we've started relief work.

I told PM that we'll get Rs 53,000 Cr from central govt regarding food subsidy, social schemes and central schemes wherever our money is there.

So I said you try to give some money to us so that we can work in this crisis," said CM Banerjee.

LDF, UDF not done much to improve tourism infrastructure in Kerala: PM Modi

Ahead of Kerala Assembly elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a public rally in Palakkad on March 30. While addressing a rally, PM said, "The time has come for FAST development in Kerala- F for fisheries and fertilisers, A for agriculture and Ayurveda, S for skill development and social justice and T for tourism and technology." "Our government is undertaking many steps for the growth of agriculture and the welfare of farmers. For many years, governments promised MSP hikes, but it was our government that had the honour of raising the MSP for farmers. Kerala and tourism have a close link. Sadly, LDF and UDF have not done much to improve tourism infrastructure here. We want technology to serve as a basis for growth," he added.
