Lord Paul donates Rs 20 lakh for quake victims

London, October , 2005

NRI industrialist Lord Swraj Paul on Sunday announced a donation of Rs 10 lakh each for relief efforts in quake-affected Jammu and Kashmir and Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

In a letter to Defence Minister Pranab Mukherjee, Lord Paul said he was saddened by the "loss of life caused by the earthquake in Jammu and Kashmir, especially those of the armed forces and border security forces."

He forwarded a cheque for Rs 10 lakh for the The Prime Minister’s Relief Fund.

Lord Paul, who is also the British Ambassador for Overseas Business, also sent a cheque for Rs 10 lakh to Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf for relief work in quake-ravaged PoK.

Lord Paul, Chairman of the London 2012 Olympics Implementation Committee, was in India leading a high-level British Parliamentary delegation when the earthquake jolted the region claiming over 50,000 lives, mostly in Pakistan.
