Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has postponed his visit to cyclone-hit Odisha and Andhra Pradesh, scheduled for Saturday, due to "scheduling issues".

The Prime Minister was to undertake an aerial survey of the two states, hit by cyclone Phailin Oct 12.

"The visit has been postponed due to scheduling issues," PMO sources told IANS.

The prime minister was expected to make some announcement about financial aid.

While reviewing the impact of the cyclone late last month, the prime minister had complimented the efforts of the Odisha and Andhra Pradesh governments as well as relief agencies in managing the cyclone's aftermath.
