Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh talked to Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and took stock of the situation of Mumbai that has been facing torrential rains for the last three-days, severely affecting normal life in the city.

"Had a telephonic conversation with Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis regarding the situation due to heavy rains in Mumbai and nearby areas. I also assured him of all possible help from the centre," Rajnath Singh said in a series of tweets.

"The NDRF (National Disaster Response Force) teams have already reached Mumbai for rescue and relief operations."

Torrential rains lashed Mumbai, Thane, Palghar, Raigad and other parts of Maharashtra for the fourth consecutive day on Tuesday, severely affecting normal life and paralysing the lifelines -- local train and bus services -- in the state capital and leading the state government and civic authorities to sound a high alert.
