In a series of tweets addressed to the Chief Ministers of Odisha (Naveen Patnaik) and West Bengal (Mamata Banerjee) Kejriwal offered help on behalf of the people of Delhi.

"Dear Naveen_Odishaji, on behalf of the people of Delhi, I extend our full solidarity and support with you and the people of Odisha in the wake of the destruction caused by Cyclone Amphan. Kindly let us know if we could help in any manner in this hour of crisis," Kejriwal said.
