The former chief minister said that in the past as mayor and local administration minister, Stalin had done very little to alleviate Chennai’s waterlogging problem.

AIADMK Interim General Secretary and former Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami on Wednesday refuted Chief Minister MK Stalin’s criticism that the previous AIADMK regime did not do anything to tackle the Chennai flood problem.

Counter-accusing Mr. Stalin, who as Chennai’s mayor in the mid-1990s and then as Local Government Minister, did little to alleviate the city’s problem, Mr. Palaniswami, in a statement, made several points. the steps taken in this regard.

Recalling that Mr. Stalin had declared that a year ago, 750 km of silt removal had been done in the city, the AIADMK leader said that Municipal Administration Minister KN Nehru had now gone on record saying that 1,200 km had been done this year. “According to what both have said, if the 1,950 km of silt removal has been completed, it would not be full of water because of one day’s rain,” he said.

As 18 months have passed since the DMK government assumed office, it was the duty of the regime to take steps to come to the rescue of rain-hit people instead of blaming the previous AIADMK regime. The prime minister added.
