Chennai Floods: Kerala CM writes to Jayalalithaa offering aid

Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy has written a letter to his Tamil Nadu counterpart J. Jayalalithaa, offering whatever help is required in the view of the devastating Chennai floods.

We are deeply pained by the untold sufferings caused due to the floods that have created havoc in Tamil Nadu. Please let us know what help is required from our side and we are willing to send medical teams and medicines. We are waiting to hear from you,

It said Kerala will dispatch 10,000 kilograms of bleaching powder and an equal number of gloves on Monday.

Kerala has already sent state Health Secretary E. Elangovan to Chennai and the Norka office (the state government agency that looks after the welfare of the Kerala diaspora) in Chennai has opened a help line and by now, around 3,000 calls have been addressed.

The state-owned Road Transport Corporation is operating daily bus services by bringing back all Keralites free of cost and also all the buses traveling towards Chennai are laden with chappatis for being distributed to the needy in Chennai.
