February 16, 2005 18:19 IST

The Centre will fully support the rehabilitation of tsunami victims, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh assured Kerala on Wednesday

"We are committed to converting this tragedy into an opportunity to rebuild a new life for the survivors," he said at the foundation stone-laying ceremony of the Rs 3,000 crore ICTT project in Kochi.

"It is, however, rare that the sea has brought death and destruction," said the PM. "The sea has fed you, given you employment and has brought trade and prosperity to Kerala."
