2 Video @INCIndia @hd_kumaraswamy Govt treating #KarnatakaFloods #KarnatakaFloodRelief victims like dogs. PWD Minister HD Revanna throwing biscuits at Flood affected people like you throw them at your pets. See their arrogance and attitude. @narendramodi
3 Video RSS always serves people in calamities without publicity/donations. BJP MPs like @ShobhaBJP & forget comforts of office serve as ground volunteers but @hd_kumaraswamy uses state helicoptors to read newspapers. @narendramodi @BSYBJP @amitrshah @RSSorg @PMOIndia @HMOIndia

As you can see the flood hit areas in Kerala, they are all rich, almost all. Only 10% may be poor.
They don't need any help in cash or kind.
Please stop sending food or other things.
Security forces are doing the needful.
All they need is labour force, once the water recedes.
Kerala has no labours, though they pay high wages.
Electricians, plumbers, carpenters, painters, masons, domestic helpers are needed urgently by Keralites.
Commies & Kerala Govt are begging for funds for their own luxuries.
Most of the development in Kerala is done by common people.
Even the International airports are the contribution of common citizens in Kerala.

#KeralaFloodRelief thread. Pls bear with me. I know many of you have sent relief materials to Kerala. But please don't stop sending clothes, pulses, condiments, napkins, food etc. There are more than 7 lk people in relief camps across Kerala. Many don't have a house to go bk to.
As we go back to our offices tomorrow, these people will still be living in camps. In places in Alappuzha district the water won't recede for a few more days. In districts like Idukki and Wayanad, houses have been destroyed completely.
Many people will need to stay in these camps for a few more days. Which means the govt and other citizens need to ensure that all of them get good food and medication. And when they go back home, the process of rebuilding their lives will begin.

1. I normally do not tweet about my participation in relief operations. But given the amount of hate dialogue and north south name calling I am seeing here, please bear with me for this thread about #KeralaFloodRelief
2. Some time late friday night @4eo tweeted that he had worked out a great deal on sanitary napkins purchased in bulk, from in Delhi for #KeralaFloodRelief
3. Having noticed some discussions about an acute shortage of sanitary napkins in Kerala, I DM’d @4eo for more details. In short, we decided to pitch in. I sent a WhatsApp message to Mandeep Singh of on Saturday morning, and he immediately called back.

At A time when the Kerala state is battling devastation on a scale unseen in recent memory, Minister K Raju along with Ponnani MP E T Mohammed Basheer and CPI’s JNU Fame Mohammed Muhassin, the Pattambi MLA, chose to tour Germany.
Local People are talking of how badly Kerala govt managed flood situation by not managing the out flow of water from 50+ dams gradually but instead released it suddenly to flood & kill people & crops #KeralaFloodRelief
They will come correctly back on time to receive all the credit on the hard work done by defence soldiers and other volunteers. All news headlines will have their photos on front page search including the CM who is presently nowhere!!!

There are many charities and organisations collecting funds for #KeralaFloodRelief - thanks to everybody who organised / donated, you're all awesome!

I personally donated to @CMOKerala 's Disaster Relief Fund (CMDRF).

Why did I choose CMDRF?
Kerala CMDRF is operated by the Finance Secretary GoK, through the CMDRF bank account in SBI Trivandrum.

Does this mean that this IAS officer can operate this on his whims?


This financial authority is delegated to officers in each tier of CMDRF.

Does this mean beneficiaries have to go and meet these officers and/or local politicians to get CMDRF funds?


CMDRF is completely direct to the beneficiary; and beneficiaries are paid out via direct bank transfer.

A child rescued by an Indian Navy Chetak chopper team in Aluva.
Salute 🙏
Before spewing venom against PM Modi & propagating lies, just learn who sent all rescue teams to Kerala?
Anyone from madrassa or lslamic orgs volunteered?
Your @CMOKerala is just watching helplessly.
Kerala provided Rs.5cr to Pakistan for flood relief.
The @CMOKerala noted that the floods had caused considerable hardships to the people of Pakistan. Hence the decision to provide the assistance.

Does he know the pathetic condition of common man in Kerala Or taken for granted?

Nice to see @manoramanews try to be constructive instead of chasing TRPs. So refreshing #KeralaFloodRelief
General feel is that the administration is trying their best but the situation may slowly be spiralling out of their control #KeralaFloodRelief
Sad to see the rumour-mongering and passion-whipping over #Mullaperiyar. No cracks or leaks have developed, so no need for any panic

It started heavily even in Thiruvananthapuram. Heard that Mudirapuzha arm of Periyar receiving heavy rainfall and Madupetty Dam shutters are opened. Mullaperiyar is at 136.60 ft at 12noon today. #KeralaFloods
The water from Madupetty Dam will flow through Munnar to Kallarkutty and Lower Periyar Dams and will join Bhoothankettu Barrage in Periyar River..
Mudirapuzha arm of Periyar is used to receive heavy rainfall. This sub basin along with Mullaperiyar catchment created great havocs in 1924 and 1961 floods.
