Chief Minister V Vaithilingam today laid the foundation for a project to construct 1373 houses for Tsunami hit families at Nallavadu fishermen's hamlet here.

In the first phase, 300 individual houses would be built at a cost of Rs 18 crore. These houses would be available by December 31, 2010, District Collector G Ragesh Chandra told newsmen on the sidelines of the function at the village.
