UttarakhandDehradun: The ruling Congress in Uttarakhand today demanded a package of Rs 5,000 crore from the Centre for disaster-hit people of the state.

In a letter faxed to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and AICC chief Sonia Gandhi, Pradesh Congress spokesman Dhirendra Pratap said at a time when Chief Minister Vijay Bahuguna is making efforts on a war footing to provide relief to affected people and reconstruct damaged infrastructure across the state, an assistance of Rs 5,000 crore from the Centre is a must.

In a situation like this when the state has been struck by the worst tragedy in its history, a package of Rs 5,000 crore from the Centre is not just a necessity but a compulsive need, he said.
