Polit Bureau’s Appeal:
Heavy rains and floods have caused largescale damage in the entire state of Kerala. All the districts and all the 1,654 villages of the state are affected. In the current spell of rains, landslides and floods alone 65 people have been officially reported killed till August 15, while 265 people are reported killed during this monsoon. More than 50,000 houses have been completely destroyed and more than one lakh fifty thousand people are currently lodged in relief camps. Train, rail, air and road transport have been suspended in major parts of the state. All the rivers in the state are in spate and the shutters of 27 dams have been opened.
Despite coordinated rescue efforts by multiple agencies, people are marooned in various parts of the state. The state government is rendering all possible help to the people. The Centre too has promised all help. The army, navy, airforce and other agencies are also rendering all possible help.
Given this unprecedented situation that the people of Kerala are confronted with, the Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) fervently appeals to people of the entire country to contribute generously to aid the rescue and relief operations.
Given the urgency, Party members, sympathisers and the general public are requested to rush their individual contributions either through drafts/cheques drawn in favour of: Communist Party of India (Marxist) and send them to:
