"In this hour of crisis, it is our duty to provide relief materials in full swing to the affected people. I, therefore, appeal party cadres, legislators, district secretaries to collect the necessary relief materials and send them to our Tiruchirappalli, Kalaignar Arivalayam (office) immediately," he said.
