Install information boards for Kerala relief work: Roy
State minister Saryu Roy said there are many people in the city who are willing to help Kerala flood victims, but somehow they are unable to do so as they do not know where to send relief fund or materials. This is because lack of information, said Roy, adding further that the district administration should install boards or banners outside government offices to help people send relief or donate funds for Kerala victims. The boards should have the names, phone numbers and addresses of officials collecting relief funds and materials, said Roy.
