KALPETTA: The team including chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan and leader of opposition Ramesh Chennithala have met people living in relief camps who lost their houses and assets in heavy rains. The CM and his team reached Wayanad at 11 am. The team reached Sulthan Bathery in air force helicopter and went by car to Mundanmudi. About 700 tribal people are living in relief camps at Mundanmudi.

The tribal people voiced their concerns to CM and his team. CM promised that the government will provide all  necessary help. He also directed them to wait until the rain stops. CM also told that food and water have been arranged in the relief camps. A demand was raised to visit the houses of the colony, however it was cancelled as it was told to be not practical. CM and his team went to Wayanad collectorate after spending about fifteen minutes in the camp. The situation was assessed in an evaluation meeting held at the collectorate. They will go to Kozhikode later.

CM and his team landed at Sulthan Bathery at 10:10 am. Many leaders including minister Kadakampally Surendran were waiting for them. Meantime, CM could not visit disaster affected areas of Idukki as his helicopter could not land there due to bad weather. The six member team led by CM started their journey from Sanghumugham air force technical area at 7:45 am. They were supposed to land at Kattappana government college ground. However, they went directly to Wayanad as it was informed that landing at Idukki was not possible due to bad weather. The disruption was caused by heavy snow and slight rain. Though the CM could not participate, an evaluation meeting was held in Kattappana under the leadership of minister M M Mani. Minister K Raju and Roshy Augustine MLA participated in the meeting.

CM and his team are evaluating the disaster relief activities after landing at Sulthan Bathery. They are also visiting the relief camps. They will go to Kozhikode later. The team will head to Kochi at 4:45 pm and will leave back to Thiruvananthapuram at 6:30 pm after evaluating the disaster relief activities. Though it was initially planned to visit six places affected by the rain, it was reduced to three places due to bad weather. Revenure minister E Chandrasekharan, opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala, chief secretary Tom Jose and DGP Loknath Behra are accompanying the chief minister.
