Another major challenge has come in the midst of the ongoing corona virus crisis in West Bengal. The state has not seen such devastation due to cyclonic storm Amfan which has created havoc in the past. Prime Minister Narendra Modi also reached West Bengal on Friday and made an aerial survey of the affected areas by helicopter.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi conducted an aerial survey in a helicopter with Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, Governor Jagdeep Dhankad. And saw the scene of destruction in Bengal.
It can be seen in the video that came out that how much area of Bengal has become watery, water is filled everywhere. Let us know that PM Modi visited the areas of North 24 Parganas and South 24 Parganas, which have been the most affected due to Amphan.
It is worth mentioning that on Thursday, the Chief Minister of the state, Mamta Banerjee had said that there has been a lot of destruction in the state due to the amphon, which is more than the corona virus. In such a situation, Mamta appealed that PM Modi should come to the state and see the situation.
After this, it came to know at night that PM Modi will visit Bengal. After aerial survey and meeting with officials here, PM Modi will also go to Odisha, where the ruin has been caused due to Amfan.
Significantly, next year assembly elections are due in West Bengal, in the last few days there was a fierce rhetoric between the Center and the state. Whether it was the corona virus crisis or the lockdown, there was an altercation in both. But meanwhile, now Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee are now taking stock together.
