"An Uttarakhand rehabilitation and reconstruction authority will be established to decide planning and development of the state," Bahuguna said addressing a press conference in Dehradun.

He said the government would be providing free rations to all those affected by the flood and villages which have been cut-off due to roads being washed away will receive supplies for a month.

He also thanked Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress president Sonia Gandhi for "staying in touch with us and promising all assistance from the Centre".
