Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy will conduct an aerial survey of the areas affected by the very severe cyclonic storm Nivar on Saturday.

“After the aerial survey, the Chief Minister would hold a review meeting in Tirupati,” said an official.

The Chief Minister’s review meeting will be attended by the district collectors and other senior officials from Nellore, Chittoor and Kadapa.

Meanwhile, the state Cabinet met on Friday under the chairmanship of Reddy and decided to enumerate the crop loss due to Nivar on a war footing.

The Cabinet decided that the enumeration should be finished by December 15 so that compensation to farmers could be paid by December 31.
