Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday asked the Tamil Nadu and Kerala state governments to step-up relief measures even as protests continued in coastal areas over the tardy response of government agencies.


Expressing his condolences to those who died due to Cyclone Ockhi, Rahul Gandhi tweeted "I express my deepest condolences to those who lost their dear ones due to Cyclone Ockhi,'' he wrote on his official Twitter handle. 


The Congress leader wrote the same message in Tamil and Malayalam in an indication of two southern states hit by the cyclone.
