The Employee Provident Fund Organization has already contributed R1 crore to chief minister’s relief fund, besides food items and other essential materials like woolen clothing, footwear, blankets and rain coats.

“A total of 22 ton relief material is being sent through seven trucks,” an official release said.

“I extend my sympathy to the families of those who have lost their near and dear ones,” Ola said in a statement.
