Bhubaneswar, November 3: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik would leave for the national capital on a six-day visit on Tuesday.

“I will meet Finance Minister Arun Jaitley to submit a memorandum on the damages incurred in the southern districts due to the recent Cyclone Hudhud. Also, I will discuss about the remaining Central assistance for Pahailin last year,” said Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik.  

Sources said his appointment with Prime Minister Narendra Modi is, however, yet to be fixed.

He is scheduled to return the State on November 9.

Meanwhile, the State Government has prepared a final memorandum on Hudhud damage after getting damage reports from all concerned cyclone affected district collectors of the State. 

The Chief Minister had visited Delhi during the last Durga Puja holidays.

After Cyclone Hudhud, Patnaik had written to the Prime Minister seeking a Rs 500 crore interim assistance relief and rehabilitation package, but the Centre is yet to act on it.
