Relief work reflects communal amity
Coimbatore: The rescue and relief operations of
tsunami-affected families in various parts of Tamil Nadu reflected the highest example of communal amity and national integrity, the state IUML president and MP, Prof Khader Moideen, said here on , Jan 15.
The tragic disaster would remain as the most sorrowful one in the minds of the people for long, but communities joining together to provide relief and rehabilitation were a satisfying development, Moideen told reporters here.
Moideen, who had visited many affected areas, said without taking into consideration the religion, caste or creed of the affected, people had responded well to extend cooperation and help, by way of giving money, shelter, food and other rehabilitation measures.
Asked whether the party was satisfied with the relief measures being undertaken by the state government, he said though there was "initial lapse," the government was now doing a good job.
Even the Centre had not lagged behind in providing the necessary relief measures and rehabilitation and had gained a new impetus after the entry of Defence personnel, he claimed.
The IUML would seek more relief from the Centre and the issue would be raised in the next session of Parliament urging the Centre to provide more relief, he said.
