Sri Lanka is going through a difficult period as a result of its socio-economic crises. As a result, in order to alleviate their predicament, DMK (Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam) members stated that they would pay one month’s salary to the Sri Lankan chief minister’s fund.
As of Thursday, DMK President M K Stalin said that members of the ruling party’s House of Representatives will be giving their one-month pay to help the Sri Lankan people in their time of need. According to the report, all of the DMK’s members of Parliament, including those in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha, would contribute to this beneficial measure.
This call for support comes from the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu and President of the DMK, despite the fact that the party has already been informed that it would give Rs. 1 crore to the relief efforts in Sri Lanka.
Former Chief Minister Stalin also called to the general public to donate to the state government in order for it to acquire basics such as food and medication and distribute them to the Sri Lankan people, who are now facing a difficult economic struggle.
According to the sources, the DMK party has asked permission from the central government to provide the people of Sri Lanka with basic essentials such as cereals, dairy products, and life-saving drugs, among other things.
During his visit to New Delhi, the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu met with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and demanded that the Centre approve the Tamil Nadu government’s efforts to allow philanthropic assistance to Sri Lanka.
Despite the fact that, according to recent reports, the Indian government gave around 40 thousand metric tonnes of gasoline to Sri Lanka, for a total of Rs. 18 500 crores. As a result, this assistance would be a significant help to Sri Lanka in dealing with the current situation.
