Beginning with an aid offer of Rs 700 crore from the United Arab Emirates, there is rush for financial assistance from countries where Keralites are living in some numbers. The money is being offered for rehabilitation of the victims of Kerala floods and reconstruction of public properties damaged due to the monsoon fury.
Besides UAE, Sharjah city has offered a separate financial aid of Rs 4 crore. Qatar has offered a help of Rs 35 crore. Maldives has also offered some help. But, the Indian government has decided to refuse any help to deal with the post-flood reconstruction and rehabilitation process.
The decision of the Modi government has been questioned by Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan. But the Modi government is actually following a policy adopted by the previous Manmohan Singh government.
