With Cyclone Phailin gradually taking the shape of a super cyclone, Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Friday asked people not to panic over the situation as the state government was "fully" prepared to face any eventuality.

"Cyclone Phailin is likely to affect the coastal districts and some other interior places. The state government has made all arrangements to face the situation," Patnaik said in a message to the people.

Stating that the Navy, Air Force, NDRF, ODRAF and all concerned were ready to face the situation, Patnaik appealed to all sarpanches and other elected peoples' representatives to extend their assistance.

The Chief Minister said he had already directed authorities to take strong action against hoarders selling essential items at high price due to the prevailing situation.

The state government is also prepared to start relief and rehabilitation activities as soon as the calamity passes Odisha, Patnaik said.

"We can effectively face the crisis if we work unitedly," he added.
