According to a release issued on Monday, two teams of six members led by the financial advisor of the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), Rvinesh Kumar will be visiting the flood-affected areas. While one team visits the Alluri Sitaaramaraju District, the other is scheduled to tour the Eluru District on the 10 of August 2022.
