Chennai Rains: Prime Minister Assures Of Centre’s Support In Relief Work

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday spoke to Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin where they discussed the situation in the wake of heavy rainfall in parts of the state.

PM Modi informed about the conversation on Twitter: “Spoke to Tamil Nadu CM, Thiru MK Stalin and discussed the situation in the wake of heavy rainfall in parts of the state. Assured all possible support from the Centre in rescue and relief work. I pray for everyone’s well-being and safety”.

Tamil Nadu CM MK Stalin thanked PM Modi and revealed that the government has requested for Centre to release funds from the National Disaster Relief Fund (NDRF) for this cyclone season.

Earlier, CM Stalin directed officials to expedite rescue and relief work amid heavy rainfall in Chennai and several other parts of the state during the last 24 hours.

Reviewing the situation, MK Stalin monitored relief operations in places inundated during the rain, reminiscing the 2015 deluge.

The Chief Minister visited Kolathur, Perambur, Purasaiwalkam, Kosappet, Otteri and distributed food and relief materials to affected people sheltered in a school nearby.

He also directed authorities to ‘swiftly’ engage in relief work while asking the officials of local administration, revenue and public welfare departments to take steps to ensure that there was no waterlogging and that people living in low-lying areas are evacuated.

Instructions were also given to adhere to Covid-19 norms strictly in relief camps
