Kerala CM’s Bold Move: Demands Action from UAE Over Rain Tweet


Pinarayi Vijayan Kerala: Urgent Appeal for Assistance Amid Heavy Rains in UAE

Recently, Pinarayi Vijayan, the Chief Minister of Kerala, made a compelling plea to the government regarding the adverse effects of heavy rains on Indian expatriates in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Through social media posts, Vijayan highlighted the urgent need to extend assistance to those affected by the torrential downpour.

Impact of Heavy Rains in the UAE

The UAE witnessed unprecedented rainfall, shattering records dating back 75 years. This deluge wreaked havoc across the region, particularly in desert areas and neighboring regions.

Call for Assistance

In light of these circumstances, Pinarayi Vijayan fervently appealed for the establishment of a mechanism to aid affected Indians. He also expressed gratitude towards Malayali expatriates for their involvement in rescue operations in Gulf countries.

UAE’s Unpreparedness

The magnitude of the rainfall caught the UAE off guard, leading to widespread chaos. Even in Dubai, renowned for its infrastructure, the situation turned dire, with flooding inundating streets, malls, and even halting operations at international airports.

Causes of the Deluge

Authorities attribute the calamity to errors in cloud seeding, a weather modification technique employed to induce rainfall.

Response from Indian Diplomatic Mission

In response, the Indian diplomatic mission in the UAE swiftly acted, issuing helpline numbers and providing essential guidance to affected Indian nationals.

The bond between Kerala and the Gulf nations remains strong, evidenced by mutual aid efforts during times of crisis. Pinarayi Vijayan’s plea underscores the importance of swift action to alleviate the suffering of those impacted by natural disasters, regardless of geographical boundaries.
