Hundreds gathered at the Ernakulam civil station for flood relief aid which was promised time ago by the Chief Minister of Kerala.

Hundreds of people gathered the Ernakulam civil station for registering complaints with the complaints redress cell with regard to flood relief. Money as well as shelters were promised to many but only few could make the most out of what was promised. Among the people who thronged the civil station were elders as well as youngsters. Around 300 people waited for relief at the civil station.

“I received the initial amount of 10,000 that was given to everyone after the flood. However, the first, second and third instalments that had been promised is yet to arrive in my bank account. Many people in my area have received the same,” said Shyla of North Paravoor to TNIE.
