Also, earlier on day, Congress President Rahul Gandhi appealed to party workers to be prepared to help out people who are being affected by cyclone "Vayu".
"Cyclone Vayu is nearing the Gujarat coast. I appeal to all Congress workers to be prepared to help out in all the areas that come in the cyclone's way. I pray for the security and well-being of all the people in the areas that will be affected by the cyclone," Gandhi tweeted in Hindi.
चक्रवात 'वायु' गुजरात तट के करीब पहुँचने वाला है। मै गुजरात के सभी कांग्रेस कार्यकर्ताओं से अपील करता हूं कि वे इसके रास्ते में आने वाले सभी क्षेत्रों में मदद के लिए तैयार रहे। मै चक्रवात से प्रभावित होने वाले क्षेत्रों के सभी लोगों की सुरक्षा और कल्याण के लिए प्रार्थना करता हूं। pic.twitter.com/ablBFPT6UF— Rahul Gandhi (@RahulGandhi) June 12, 2019
