Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India] August 4 (ANI): Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa is going to conduct an aerial survey of flood-affected areas in the state on Monday.
This comes after Karnataka Congress MLA HK Patil wrote to Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa, asking him to cancel his Delhi trip, scheduled for August 6, and visit flood-affected areas of north Karnataka instead.
Heavy rainfall in Maharashtra has triggered a flood-like situation in parts of northern Karnataka, with Maharashtra releasing huge volumes of water from its reservoirs.
It is pertinent to mention that with his Cabinet yet to be constituted, Yediyurappa was scheduled to visit Delhi for discussions with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on August 6.
Yediyurappa was sworn-in as the 25th chief minister of Karnataka on July 26, following the collapse of the Congress-JD(S) government after it lost the trust vote in the Karnataka Assembly. (ANI)
