Continuing its efforts to help flood-affected Kerala, Pune Division of the Indian Railways on Tuesday sent four tonnes of relief material, including food, clothes and medicines, to Thiruvananthapuram. Last week, the Pune division had sent a train with 29 wagons filled with drinking water to Kayamkulam in coastal part of Kerala, as the state faced severe shortage of drinking water. An empty train with 18 coaches, all general bogey, was also sent to Thiruvananthapuram on Monday. This is third such relief material sent by the division.
It may be noted here that Central Railway has already sent potable water in 14 wagons to Kerala, besides sending 27,000 kg of relief material to Kerala by different trains.
