Nilgiris: We are with you, say planters

Udhagamandalam: When problems and challenges confront the district the planting community will not be found wanting, observed the Chairman, Nilgiri Planters Association (NPA), Jiten Pareek, while extending a helping hand to about 200 flood- and landslide-affected persons housed in a relief camp at Yellanhalli near Coonoor on Monday.

He expressed concern over the enormous damage caused by the natural calamity. The managements and workers of the member estates of the NPA expressed their sympathies to the affected families, he said. By way of saying, “we are with you,” relief materials in the form of weather protectives had been given to some of the affected persons, Mr. Pareek added.
