The district administration appreciates the concerns of the public and we welcome your suggestions too. At the same time, we request you to please verify the facts before forming an opinion.
Here are the facts-
1. District administration Thiruvananthapuram has been actively involved in the disaster management, under continuous guidance and support from various district level officers including me.
2. The decision taken to hold the collection efforts as of yesterday, is based upon consistent deliberations with the district administration of affected districts, and not out of lack of empathy (as one might tend to believe in the wake of missing information).
3. Based on the inputs from affected districts, urgent need was with respect to the medical help and we have been quick and active to address this, sending teams to requested districts, besides many other types of assistance such as rescue boats etc.
4. We are keeping a close watch over the situation and are helping our brothers and sisters in affected areas. We will start collection centre and bring our people to normalcy this time too.
We request you to be considerate in your opinion before writing off the efforts being made by hundreds of sensitive, diligent and empathetic team here.
