The Central government released Rs 700 crore for Andhra Pradesh to meet its financial requirements. Centre came under criticism for releasing Rs 1000 crore for Tamil Nadu immediately after Jayalalithaa wrote a letter seeking assistance for flood-hit areas. One day prior to Tamil Nadu CM wrote a letter to Centre, Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu made an appeal to Centre to release Rs 1000 crore for rain-affected districts. The Central government told that it had already released Rs 330 crore as financial assistance towards natural calamities.
