Thiruvananthapuram: Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde, who was a volunteer in 2018 flood-hit Alappuzha, is planning to visit Kerala again.

Shinde will visit Alappuzha’s Kuttanad region which continues to reel under the rain-inflicted damages, sources told UNI.

“Eknath Shinde is also planning to construct a guest house in Sabarimala for the Lord Ayyappa devotees from Maharashtra. A proposal in this regard will be sent to the Kerala Government for its approval and cooperation.”

During his visit to Kerala, Shinde is expected to visit Lord Padmanabha Swamy temple and Pournamikkavu temple in Vizhinjam in this district.

Shiv Sena Kerala Secretary Advocate Perurkada G Harikumar said, “The Maharashtra Cheif Minister has expressed his intentions to visit Allapuzha, where he volunteered during the 2018 floods.”

“During my travel with Chief Minister Eknath Shinde from Mumbai to Delhi, we discussed many things including existing political situations in Kerala. His tour plans to Kerala will be chalked out soon,” he added.
