Even after three months of cyclone Titli and subsequent floods hitting Ganjam, people in many parts of Patrapur block are yet to get the assistance announced by the State Government.
2018 was an eventful year for political parties as many leaders of Congress, BJP and Left joined the ruling BJD.
Despite the havoc brought by cyclone Titli in Odisha, the rainfall that followed the natural calamity has led to the bumper harvest of paddy in all eight blocks of Dhenkanal district.
Titli was the rarest of rare cyclones in more than two centuries due to the recurvature after its landfall, a phenomenon that is quite uncommon.
The State Government will provide financial assistance under Biju Pucca Ghar Yojana (BPGY) to 13,000 families whose houses were completely destroyed by cyclone Titli.
Commenting on the allegations made, district collector K Dhananjaya Reddy admitted that that some mistakes had occurred during the enumeration as well as the payment of compensation.
It has been one month since cyclone Titli and subsequent floods left a trail of destruction in Ganjam district.
The Chief Minister lashed out at the Centre, saying it had displayed an 'inhuman attitude' by not extending 'even a paisa' for victims of the devastating cyclone Titli.
On the occasion, the CM came down heavily on the Centre. He said the Centre did not grant even a single rupee to the victims.
DRDA PA Sidhartha Sankar Swain and BeMC Commissioner Chakraborty Singh Rathore were present.
