According to sources Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Wednesday said the reason for Centre's refusal to accept the aid offered by UAE Government for Kerala flood relief continues to remain a mystery. Meanwhile the chief minister said industrialist M.A. Yusuf Ali had made public UAE's Rs 700 crore proposal with the permission of Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed bin Sultan Al-Nahyan, the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and he had informed the Prime Minister about their contribution for Kerala.
Accordingly he said the government will seek contribution and technical expertise from all over the world for Rebuilding Kerala. Recently the UN has estimated Rs 31,000 crore loss in the recent floods and the Centre could only provide Rs 4,790 crore as per existing provisions which means there is a gap of Rs 26,000 crores which the state government will have to mobilize on its own.
Moreover Pinarayi lamented that the Centre had denied permission to ministers to visit foreign countries for collecting funds for rebuilding Kerala from the NRKs. Further the chief minister lauded the unprecedented efforts of fishermen, local self government representatives and in carrying out the rescue operations during floods and also said those who lost their means of livelihood in the calamity would be provided jobs and additional resources.
