Prime Minister Narendra Modi
will visit Odisha and West Bengal on Friday to review the impact of cyclone Yaas
on the two coastal states. Government sources said Modi
will first hold a review meeting in Bhubaneswar and then proceed for an aerial survey in the affected areas of Balasore, Bhadrak and Purba Medinipur.
He will then hold a review meeting in West Bengal.
Cyclone Yaas pounded parts of India’s eastern coast on Wednesday, killing at least four people and forcing more than 21 lakh people to be evacuated to safe shelters in West Bengal, Odisha and Jharkhand.
