    Kerala finance minister Thomas Issac on Monday criticised the central government’s flood relief package of Rs 100 crore saying it is not enough for a  state which has suffered losses as much as Rs 8,000 crore due to floods.
    The monsoon fury has killed more than 37 people and displaced 101,000 from Kerala, causing a loss of Rs 8,000 crore.
    Terming the flood situation in Kerala following heavy rains as something never witnessed by the state since independence, home minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday announced Rs 100 crore as immediate central relief.
    The minister, who made an aerial survey of badly affected areas in Idukki and Ernakulam districts, said the rains and floods had caused "massive damage" to the farm sector and infrastructure like roads and power.
