It seems even in these trying times the VIP culture in Chennai continues to prevail, adding to the woes and emotional distress faced by the public due to flooding.
Tamil actor Aditi Balan is one among the millions of people whose life was thrown out of gear in the wake of Cyclone Michaung. She has taken to social media to recount the ordeal faced by people living in certain neighbourhoods, which remain submerged in the aftermath of heavy rains.
She noted that the severe waterlogging continues in several localities and shows no signs of subsiding even after a day. She highlighted a grave situation in a posh area, where she claims to have witnessed dead animals floating.
"Govt, where are you? I just went to Radhakrishnan nagar, Thiruvamiyur . Water from surrounding areas have been pumped into this area. There were dead animals floating around," Aditi Balan tweeted along with a video showing an elderly woman navigating through a flooded street.
"We had to walk thro the entire stagnation to rescue 2 kids and their grandma. Meanwhile a boat with 6 cops rowed into river view road in Kottur Puram to pick up one influential lady," she claimed, while tagging the concerned city departmenets in her tweet.
It seems even in these trying times the VIP culture in the city continues to prevail, adding to the woes and emotional distress faced by the public. "Also, I was asked to move my car while waiting to pick up family that was walking through the stagnant water because the CM convy was approaching," she revealed.
Even nearly 24 hours after her complaints, the situation remains unchanged in the aftermentioned locality. "Nothing has changed in Radhakrishnan nagar. People are still stuck there. Why isn’t anyone from the @chennaicorp reaching out to anyone there?," she tweeted on Wednesday.
