Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday declared that the whole country was supportive of Kerala as it faced its worst floods in 90 years. He said this in his monthly radio broadcast, Mann ki Baat. The State government has been demanding more Central assistance as it faces the daunting task of rehabilitation and reconstruction after rescue operations have been completed. “In today’s pressing, hard times, the entire nation is with Kerala. Our sympathies are with those families who lost their loved ones. Loss of lives cannot be compensated, but I assure the grief-stricken families that in this moment of suffering and misery, 125 crore Indians stand by them, shoulder to shoulder,” he said. “I earnestly pray for those injured in this natural disaster to get well soon. I firmly believe that the sheer grit and courage of the people of the State will see Kerala rise again,” the Prime Minister said. “Disasters, unfortunately leave behind a trail of destruction. But one gets to witness facets of humanity, humaneness during disasters. From Kutch to Kamrup, from Kashmir to Kanniyakumari, everyone is endeavouring to contribute in some way or the other so that wherever a disaster strikes, be it Kerala or any other part of India, human life returns to normalcy,” he added.
