Bhubaneswar: Union Petroleum and Natural Gas and Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Minister Dharmendra Pradhan will visit Laxmipur and Kainpur gram panchayats in Cyclone Titli and flood-hit Gajapati district today.
Reports said Pradhan’s scheduled visit to Gangabada was cancelled in the eleventh hour as a problem created over landing of helicopter in the wildered region.
“The Union Minister will visit Cyclone and flood-hit villages in Laxmipur and Kainpur gram panchayats in Gajapati district. He would talk to affected people and enquire about their sufferings,” said BJP State general secretary Bhrugu Baxipatra.
It may be noted that Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik had visited the Gangabada gram panchayat where over 16 people had died due to landslide during the floods triggered by the Cyclone Titli. He has announced assistances for the affected families.
