May 22, 2020 14:12 IST

Prime minister Narendra Modi on Friday announced an interim relief of 1,000 crore to West Bengal, parts of which were ravaged by Amphan cyclone on Wednesday. West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee had earlier said that the state has suffered damage to the tune of Rs 1 lakh crore. After the aerial survey of the affected areas, the prime minister tweeted that the tragedy struck West Bengal in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic and yet the Bengal govt is handling both the crises well. He assured the state of all help from the Centre. ((PM byte))
