Bhubaneswar: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today has requested the Centre to provide four helicopters to intensify rescue and relief operations in Kalyansinghpur in Rayagada district where due to flash floods in Nagavali and Kalyani rivers two bridges have been washed away and several parts inundated in deep water.

The Chief Minister said while the situation is being closely monitored by senior officials, the Orissa Disaster Rapid Action Force, the Central Reserve Police Force and fire services units have been rushed to expedite rescue operations. In the district, four bridges were washed away and the Therubali-Singipur railway bridge was completely damaged in the flood.

"No efforts will be spared to ensure safety of people". He directed development commissioner and special relief commissioner to supervise the rescue and relief operations in affected areas.
