Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu E Palaniswami visited Gaja-affected parts of the state today. Many remote areas are yet to get supplies for the relief. E Palaniswami was accompanied by his deputy O Pannerselvam and he visited districts of Nagapattinam and distributed relief material to the victims.

Cyclone Gaja hit the Tamil Nadu coast on November 16, between Nagapattinam and Vedaranyam. Until now Gaja has killed 63 people and has caused destruction in the state. The destruction caused by the cyclone has left 6.7 lakh people homeless. Gaja which means elephant in Sanskrit also uprooted a number of trees from the roots. The cyclone damaged boats and homes in Tiruvarur, Nagapattinam, Pudukkottai and Thanjavur districts. A number of electric poles are also damaged due to the cyclone which left many areas without electricity.

Mr Palaniswami sought Rs 15,000 crore relief fund for Tamil Nadu from the centre when he met Prime Minister Narendra Modi last week in Delhi.

Kamal Hassan, an actor who is now into politics appealed to neighbouring places in Kerala to rise above politics and help those who are affected by Cyclone Gaja. Hassan also wanted PM Modi to visit the affected areas in Tamil Nadu.

The centre asked Madras High Court yesterday to announce a temporary relief package in a week. The central team was asked to file a report within two days as they visited the affected areas and completed their assessment on Monday.

Cyclone Gaja killed approx 63 people and left behind destruction in Tamil Nadu.

AIADMK government was slammed by the opposition party DMK saying that the relief material and efforts done by the party was not satisfactory. DMK also demanded the meeting of farmers, welfare groups and political parties in the affected areas. DMK chief MK Stalin said that Mr Palaniswami is not spending enough time with Cyclone Gaja victims. On the other hand, the Tamil Nadu government released Rs 1,000 crore to help the victims aid the relief and rehabilitation efforts.
