The chief minister moved the resolution, saying Tamil Nadu was ready to send essentials, including rice, pulses, milk, and life-saving drugs, and recalled having taken up the matter already with the Centre but that there was no "clear reply" so far.

His resolution stated, "this House insists the Union government accede to Tamil Nadu government's request and make arrangements and give due permission to send food and essential items" to the affected Lankan citizens.
