Sources from Pudukottai stated that Tamilnadu Chief Minister K Palaniswami on Tuesday visited the districts hit by Cyclone Gaja, distributed relief materials among the affected people and indicated he would meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi later this week to seek central assistance. Palaniswami told reporters here during his visit to Pudukottai and Thanjavur districts "We have sought appointment with him (Modi) and also expected that it could be given day after tomorrow (Thursday). The state government will certainly take steps to get central funds and submit details of the damage with proof".

Accordingly the cyclone crossed the coast near Vedaranyam in Nagapattinam district, about 300 km from Chennai, with a speed of up to 120 kmph last Friday, claiming 46 lives and leaving a trail of destruction in over 10 districts in southern Tamilnadu. As per report relief work was hampered after various parts of the Cauvery delta region, including the cyclone hit Nagapattinam and Thiruvarur districts, were lashed by heavy rains since Tuesday morning and the weather office has forecast heavy rains in the region under the influence of a well-marked low pressure in the Bay of Bengal.

Furthermore amid criticism of his government's handling of the situation, the chief minister, who announced an Rs 1,000 crore package on Monday for immediate relief and rehabilitation work, urged the Opposition to bury political differences and contribute towards the relief activities.
