Aila relief: appeal for funds by MPs

NEW DELHI: Members of Parliament across the political spectrum on Tuesday appealed to the Rajya Sabha Chairman and Lok Sabha Speaker to request members of both the Houses to donate Rs. 10 lakh each from the MPLADS Funds for relief and rehabilitation of people affected by Cyclone Aila in West Bengal.
In an appeal, the MPs said that on earlier occasions such as the Gujarat earthquake, Bihar floods and the tsunami, members were requested to donate funds from the MPLADS and the rule was relaxed as special cases.
