New Delhi, Sept 8 (IBNS): Congress senior leader Digvijaya Singh on Monday praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "prompt action" in dealing with the flood situation in Jammu and Kashmir, which created havoc in the state.

"Commend the rescue by DMRF, Army, Police and Security Forces in J&K and also GOI and PM for prompt action and reaching out to people in POK," Singh tweeted.

The Congress leader said that he will donate his one month's salary for flood relief.

"Shall donate one month salary to CM Relief Fund for Flood Relief. We all must reach out to help the Flood Victims in J&K," Singh posted.

Modi on Sunday visited the flood-ravaged state and announced a special assistance of Rs. 1,000 crore for flood-affected Jammu and Kashmir. He said that Rs. 2 lakh compensation would be given to the kin of each dead and Rs. 50,000 each for those seriously injured owing to the crisis from the Prime Minister’s Relief Fund.

The PM undertook an aerial survey of the flood-hit belts dubbing the situation as a “national level disaster”. He assured that medical and other assistance would be provided on an urgent basis.

Modi said the army, air force and the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) personnel were cooperating with the state government to expedite relief operation in the flood-affected areas.
