Chennai, May 3 (BPNS)

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, M.K. Stalin has appealed to the people of the state to contribute to the state government to buy food materials and ship to Sri Lanka to help the people of that country who are reeling under an economic crisis.

Chief Minister Stalin also announced that his party, DMK of which he is the president would contribute Rs 1 crore to the Chief Minister’s public relief fund to support the people of Sri Lanka.

Stalin said that the Tamil Nadu government would be sending 40,000 tonnes of rice, milk powder of around 500 tonnes, and life-saving drugs to the island nation.

He called upon the people of Tamil Nadu to contribute well to supporting the people of the neighbouring country who are staring at an acute financial crisis.

The Chief Minister in his appeal called upon the people to visit https://ereceipt.tn.gov.in.cmprf/cmprf.html for sending contributions.

The island nation has been under acute financial crisis for the past couple of months and people are in the streets against the wrong policies of the Sri Lankan government. The Government of India has already supported the neighbouring nation with money, oil, and other essentials.
