Puducherry: An interim relief of Rs 4 crores has been released for relief and rehabilitation works in the flood ravaged Yanam region, enclave of Puducherry in East Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh.
Stating this, independent MLA Malladi Krishna Rao, elected to the Assembly from Yanam, said that the total damage had been assessed to be around Rs 10 crores in the region.
He said he was grateful to Chief Minister N Rangasamy for responding to the plea for relief as the region was in the grip of grim flood situation.
