Central team to visit Aila-hit areas


“The team will make an on-the-spot assessment of the extent of damage and the kind of relief works to be undertaken,” state  Finance Minister Asim Dasgupta said here on Friday.
“The team is expected either on June 8 or 9; the members will be requested to divide themselves in groups and inspect different regions closely," Dasgupta told newsmen .
The Central team’s visit has been necessitated following the state authorities’ appeal to the Union government to declare the Aila a national calamity and grant Rs 1,000 crore immediately for rescue and relief operation in the worst-affected South and North 24 Parganas of West Bengal.
