Meanwhile Party President MK Stalin said the DMK Trust will separately contribute a sum of Rs one crore towards the relief activities.  He said "The cyclone and rain have severely affected people's lives. To retrieve them from the unprecedented damage, a sum of Rs one crore will be provided from the DMK Trust”.

Furthermore he said “DMK MPs and MLAs will contribute their one month's salary, Stalin, also the state Leader of Opposition, and his party's contribution was aimed at aiding the "relief, rehabilitation and reconstruction efforts”.
