Santanu Sen asks a Supplementary Question on the funds released by the Union Government for cyclone relief in Bengal
Sir, as the reply of the hon. Minister states, the Central Government supplements the State Governments whenever there is a natural disaster or calamity. As we all know, West Bengal got badly affected by cyclones Bulbul in 2019, Amphan in 2020 and Yaas and Jawad in 2021. Our State Government did its best, but my question to the Minister is:
how much funds were released to West Bengal during these natural calamities?
