Shiv Sena MPs, MLAs to donate month’s salary towards Kerala flood relief
The Shiv Sena on Monday said all its Members of Legislative Assembly (MLAs) and Members of Parliament (MPs) will donate a month’s salary for Kerala flood relief.
The money will be donated in the Kerala Chief Minister’s Relief Fund, the Maharashtra-based party said and expressed solidarity with the people of the southern state who are reeling under unprecedented floods.
“To stand with Kerala, all MPs and MLAs of the Shiv Sena will be contributing their one month’s salary to the Kerala Chief Ministers Relief Fund,” Sena leader Aaditya Thackeray said.
“For the last week, our Thane city unit has been actively collecting essential food and clothing materials to be sent to Kerala,” he tweeted.

“Party President Uddhav Thackeray ji will also be sending essential items needed for relief work using the funds he raised through photography exhibition in 2014,” he added.
Last week, Congress legislators in Maharashtra said they will donate a month’s salary towards relief work in flood-ravaged Kerala.
The Leader of Opposition in the Legislative Assembly Radhakrishna Vikhe-Patil of the Congress said party president Rahul Gandhi has asked its members to stand beside the people of Kerala and extend all possible help to flood victims.
