New Delhi: Tamil Nadu’s Chief Minister M K Stalin accused the previous government of AIADMK’s “corruption and inaction” for waterlogging in the city on Tuesday, and stated an inquiry panel will be set up to examine distortion of crores of rupees allocated by the Centre for a smart city project.

Former CM Edappadi K Palaniswami denied the allegations and further accused the DMK government of failing its responsibilities and spreading aspersions.

Stalin said that required actions will be taken on the guilty contractors who were given the task of working on smart city projects. “No work was done by municipal administration department under S P Velumani. They were only receiving commission,” he stated. Once the flood relief work is finished, a probe will be conducted, he added.

Underlining the current rain-related situation in Chennai, Stalin cited that the DMK government is carrying out the relief work in the city. “We are providing food, shelter and medical assistance to the affected people,” he said.

The CM also said the situation is moderately improving. “Waterlogging has come down to some extent, but not fully.” He had visited several rain-hit regions in the state and reviewed possible relief measures.
