Flood affected in Moothoor East deprived of relief: Former MP

[TamilNet, Sunday, 02 January 2011, 11:50 GMT]
All affected families whether they are displaced or not in Moothoor East resettled villages due to the torrential rain now being experienced in the Trincomalee district should be provided with relief and compensation, according to a request by K.Thurairatnasingham, former member of parliament, to the Government Agent and the Divisional Secretariat concerned.

At present resettled villagers displaced and sought refuge in public buildings and welfare centres due to flood following continuous rain were the only people provided with relief and compensation, Mr. Thurairatnasingham observed.

This should be extended to other villagers who are not displaced but remain in their huts under trying condition for various reasons. However they have lost their income due to the damages caused to their paddy and subsidiary crops and also unable to go for fishing in sea.

This category of persons has lost their livelihood and undergo hardships without a meal a day, the former TNA MP has pointed out in his request.
