Sarojini, finally, receives flood relief fund
Ambalappuzha: Former Chief Minister VS Achuthanandan’s sister-in-law Sarojini has received the flood relief amount that was promised for flood victims. She was tired of knocking the doors of village office and bank for the flood relief amount. Though she had applied for the fund soon after the flood, the amount was not given.
‘I saw the news in Mathrubhumi newspaper that the money will be distributed by 4 pm. I got money as it is said. Bank manager and panchayat member brought the money’, said Sarojini happily. Money of 4000 people including Sarojini came to her account on Monday evening.
Sarojini is wife of late VS Purushothaman, brother of VS Achuthanandan. She visited the Paravoor village office and the bank for the Rs 10,000 that government has announced for flood victims. Every time she visited the offices, the officials kept saying ‘money hasn’t come’.
Learning the distress of Sarojini, Muslim Youth League activists had given Rs 10,000 to her. On Monday, K Soman, district president of BJP and activists also had come with a help of Rs 10,000. However, Sarojini didn’t take the money from them saying that her party has prohibited accepting money from BJP.
