December 24, 2005 20:15 IST

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Saturday expressed his desire to visit tsunami-affected regions to take stock of the rehabilitation work when he chaired a meeting of senior officials on the eve of the first anniversary of the disaster.

He is expected to visit Andaman and Nicobar Islands, which bore the brunt of the killer waves in 2004, in the near future, PM's Media Adviser Sanjaya Baru said in a statement after the meeting to take stock of India's response to the killer tsunami.

A detailed presentation was made on the steps taken to provide relief, ensure rehabilitation and facilitate reconstruction.
