Modi to visit cyclone-hit Andhra Tuesday

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit cyclone-hit Visakhapatnam and other parts of north coastal Andhra Tuesday.

Modi will reach the port city by a special aircraft at 1.15 p.m, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu said. After landing at the airport, he will visit the beach and some other parts of the city, which bore the brunt of cyclone Hudhud.

Naidu told reporters here that Modi will review the situation at a meeting to be held at the office of the district collector. He will then undertake an aerial survey of the other affected areas.

The chief minister added that he would brief the prime minister of the situation and give him details of the devastation caused by the cyclone.

Naidu had already written to Modi to declare it a national calamity and provide Rs.2,000 crore as interim relief.
