Flood relief convoy from North arrives Colombo

[TamilNet, Thursday, 22 May 2003, 14:55 GMT]
A convoy of six lorries loaded with flood relief supplies valued at more than three million rupees sent by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) from north arrived Colombo Thursday, government sources said.

The relief supplies were immediately sent to the affected areas in the south for distribution.

Minister and the leader of the Upcountry People’s Front (UPF) Mr. P.Chandrasekaran and LTTE representatives distributed the relief materials at Kalutara, State run Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation reported Thursday.

The LTTE's goodwill gesture would strengthen the relationship between Tamils and Sinhalese, Minister Mr.Chandrasekaran said.

Meanwhile, Trincomalee town and gravets Divisional Secretary Mr. Sundaram Arumainayagam Thursday inaugurated a campaign to collect relief supplies from residents of the east port town to be sent to south, the sources said.
