He said 103 taluks were affected by floods. The state government, along with providing Rs 5 lakh for each family which lost their house during the calamity, had provided Rs 10,000 towards temporary relief and Rs 5,000 towards rent allowance.

“Apart from the interim relief of Rs 1,200 crore by the Central government, a sum of Rs 6,449.93 crore was sanctioned to various departments, towards relief measures,” he added.

Development works had been expedited in the state government under the leadership of Yediyurappa, said Kateel.

“Many of the developmental works in Mangaluru City Corporation limits are being implemented under the funds released by Smart City and Amrit projects of Central government and also the Rs 200 crore funds released during the previous chief ministerial tenure of Yediyurappa in the state,” he said.

While reacting to a query on the leaked video allegedly involving the chief minister, he said that it was not recorded by any BJP worker.
