Central Govt of India approves Tamil Nadu State proposal to provide relief to SL

A proposal submitted by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M.K. Stalin to the Provincial Council of India suggesting relief packages to Sri Lanka, which at the moment is grappling with a major economic crisis has been approved, reports say.

The proposal has also been approved by the Central Government of India. Indian Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar told media that he had sought advice from the Indian High Commission in Colombo on the relief programme at the request of the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister.

The move to provide relief to neighbour Sri Lanka would be a very good decision and this relief programme will be undertaken in addition to the relief package already dispatched to Sri Lanka by the Central Government of India, he emphasised.

According to the proposal tabled in the Provincial Council, Sri Lankan citizens will receive essential food items including rice and essential medicines.

Minister Jaishankar added that the relief can be dispatched at the discretion of the Government of Sri Lanka in coordination with the Indian High Commission in Colombo.
