By afternoon, he is scheduled to fly to Delhi from there, the Indian Express reported.

Earlier, Yediyurappa had said that he would visit Delhi to seek more relief for the damages caused by floods for the third consecutive year in various parts of the state. 

The central team had visited Karnataka's flood-affected regions recently to assess the extent of damages.
