AIADMK hits out against Stalin for inundation in North Chennai

Chennai, Nov 2 (BPNS)

AIADMK state organizing secretary and former Fisheries minister of Tamil Nadu, D. Jayakumar has said that the DMK government has failed in preventing inundation in North Chennai.  He said that water logging has taken place even in Kolathur assembly constituency which is represented by Chief Minister Stalin.

The former minister while interacting with reporters at Pulianthope in Chennai where a 47-year-old woman, Shanthi died after the balcony of her house fell on her, said that inundation has taken place in several other parts of Chennai including  Mambalam, Guindy, Saidapet, and Kodambakkam.

Jayakumar while speaking to media persons said, “ If this is the situation after the current spell of rain, I wonder how the government is going to handle this in the future as there would be rains in the coming days.”

The senior leader also said that the government was trying to intimidate a section of the media for trying to highlight the issue of flooding.

The senior leader said that the DMK government should act proactively and complete the stormwater drain works for proper clearing of water after heavy rains in the City.

It may be noted that heavy rains in the past two days have left some parts of Chennai, especially North Chennai inundated in water. However, the situation is much better than what was during the 2021 rains when the whole of Chennai was inundated with water leading to many people being shifted to relief centres.
