Congress general secretary in-charge of party affairs in Uttarakhand Ambika Soni on Thursday met Chief Minister Harish Rawat and state party chief Kishore Upadhyay to review relief efforts in the wake of torrential rains and cloudbursts in Pithoragarh and Chamoli districts that killed 21 people.

Taking stock of the relief efforts at the Congress office, Soni asked party workers to meet those affected by the July 1 tragedy after which 11 people are yet to be traced and extend them all possible help.

She said both Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and vice president Rahul Gandhi were deeply concerned about the situation in the state and were constantly in touch with the Chief Minister to keep themselves updated on the relief efforts.
