Centre's claim contested

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM, AUG. 14. The Revenue Minister, K. M. Mani, today contested the Union Home Ministry's claim that it had refused to consider Kerala's plea for more drought relief on account of its failure to spend funds released earlier.

Mr. Mani said that Kerala had submitted a memorandum in January this year seeking special assistance of Rs. 1,359.03 crores to meet its additional commitment on drought relief.
