While there have been ongoing relief efforts being reported in Chennai, there are a some areas where help has not reached sufficiently enough. On Saturday morning, angry residents of Rangarajapuram and surrounding areas which are close to the Adyar River in the city protested alleging government's apathy in providing relief materials and rehabilitating the people marooned in the area.
One of the protestors said that the back-flow of the sewerage has taken place because of the stagnant water in Rangarajapuram, Subramanian Nagar and Chakrapani street.
"There has been no power and water in any of those areas. The area has many children and pregnant women suffering as their homes are flooded with water mixed with filth," She said.
Another protester alleged that no official has visited his area.
"No official has set their foot in the area. They are attending to only areas where there are VIPs. Aren't we also human beings?" He asked.
He added that the water level had hardly been receding in the area and people are manually trying to get rid of the filth.
"Even if it rains for 10 minutes, the area gets submerged in waist-deep water," he added.
