The central committee that has arrived in Chennai is carrying out inspections for the second day today. It has been raining heavily in all parts of Tamil Nadu for the last few weeks.
In many parts of the state, people are suffering as their residences were inundated with rainwater. Crops in thousands of hectares in the delta districts were submerged and damaged by the torrential rains. Meanwhile, a seven-member Union team led by Union Home Secretary Rajiv Sharma arrived in Chennai from Delhi to inspect the rain and flood damage in Tamil Nadu.
The team members were told to split into two groups and inspect the flood-hit districts for two days. Accordingly, the team inspected the rain-affected areas on Veerappan Chetty Street in Pulianthope, Chennai. The team also inspected the Veerappan Chetty main road.
The committee has started inspection in Chennai and is inspecting 4 places. Following Chennai, the committee is said to visit Chengalpattu and Kanchipuram in the afternoon. The committee, which will travel to Pondicherry this evening, will stay in Pondicherry tonight and inspect places including Cuddalore and Mayiladuthurai tomorrow.
Following this, the Union Committee, which will meet Chief Minister MK Stalin on November 24, is expected to give a full report on the areas affected by the floods. Also, people and farmers expect some relief funds for the flooded area.
