Chennai flood situation very alarming: Rajnath

Describing the situation in flood-hit Chennai as “very alarming”, home minister Rajnath Singh assured both Houses of Parliament that the Centre was extending all possible assistance to the state government in dealing with the calamity. His assurances, however, failed to placate parties like TMC, AIADMK, BJD and even Congress as they demanded higher financial disbursement.

While TMC walked out of Lok Sabha, party MPs in Rajya Sabha lashed out at the government for delay in finalizing a financial package to the state.
