The chief minister reached the flood-hit Sangli district in western Maharashtra where he visited Bhilwadi, Ankalkhop, Kasbe-Digraj and various other areas to take stock of the situation.

Pawar also interacted with the flood-affected people and assured them of rehabilitation and all help from the state government.
