Last week's heavy rain blocked the underground sewers at Rose Nagar and Thendral Nagar, leading to sewage remaining stagnant not only in these areas but also in Madana Gopalapuram for six days
Addressing a press conference, Revenue Minister KKSSR Ramachandran said the government had already submitted a memorandum to Union Home Minister Amit Shah seeking Rs 2,629.29 crore
The Chief Minister announced these measures after chairing a meeting with the team of six senior ministers who had made an on-the-spot assessment of damages caused by the rains in delta districts
Due to heavy rains, the river water submerged over 15 acres of paddy and maize, following which the farmers in the district destroyed the rotten crops and planted them again
Chennai and other coastal districts of Tamil Nadu have taken the brunt of another intense spell of rainfall during the last few days and many places were inundated.
As far as Chennai is concerned, the Met office said the sky could be cloudy with possibility of light rains for the next two days
