Maharashtra flood situation in control: CM

August 07, 2006 15:39 IST

The flood situation in Maharashtra is under control and the state government is keeping a close watch on it, Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh said on Monday.

Deshmukh, who visited the low lying areas of the city on Monday morning, told reporters that the Army was assisting police and civic officials in rescue and relief operations in flood-affected districts of Buldana, Jalgaon, Nanded and Yavatmal.

Food packets and water bottles were being aerially dropped to marooned people, he added.

Meanwhile, 3 inter-city trains on the Central Railway route from Pune to Mumbai were cancelled, railway sources said.
