Speaking to PTI over phone, Nellikunnu said that people were coming from across the world to help Kerala rebuild after floods destoyed thousands of houses and forced several lakh people to stay in relief camps.

The Kerala MLA thanked the GFP and Sardesai for the truckloads of relief material.

Speaking to reporters yesterday, Sardesai said, “We believe this is the exemplification of Goemkarponn (Goanness).

It is better to be a small party with a big heart than a big party with a small heart.”

He said that Kamat was coordinating with the Kerala government to ensure that the relief material reached the people for whom it is intended.
