Separately, Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan also left for Bhadrachalam by train last evening to meet flood victims at their relief camps and donate items mobilised by the Indian Red Cross Society and the ESI Hospital.

2. Sixteen Central teams are touring the State to inspect works under Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme on complaints that the State Government has grounded works which did not qualify to be undertaken under the scheme.
