The floods of Kerala destroyed numerous lives and left them homeless, after the heavy disaster Kerala is looking to get back to it’s normal life and people from all across India whether it’s a state, celebrity, people, NGO, all are coming forward to help Kerala.
The Indian govt. has already declared 600 crore rupees relief fund for the state and declared it to be as severe calamity. But now Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan announced that the UAE has offered a huge RS 700 crore. And people are very skeptical about it since a golf country came forward with the helping hand. But it’s not the first time and the question was if the govt. will accept the generosity of the UAE king!
But as usual, NDA govt. did the right thing in Kerala flood and exactly the same as UPA did in 2013 during the Uttarakhand floods.
The Indian govt. said thanks to Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, PM of UAE but very politely declined the UAE’s offer of 700 crore and said that India will use it’s own funds and domestic effort to deal with the present situation. And it’s not only UAE, Qatar and Maldives have all pledged assistance to India for relief, rehabilitation in the state.
Deep gratitude to @HHShkMohd His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum for his concern, generosity and large heart. People of Kerala will not forget this kind gesture shown in our time of need.

In the most devastating rain Kerala in last 100years, it has lost nearly Rs.20,000 crore as stated by the Chief Minister but why India refused to receive any offers by foreign countries can be easily understood seeing India’s past records.
