Will always stand by you: Jaya to flood-hit people

Amidst mounting opposition attack over her government on handling of the northeast monsoon, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa on Tuesday sought to assure the people that she would stand by with them at all times and that there was no need for concern.

Calling herself a “dear sister” of the people, the AIADMK supremo said that her thoughts constantly revolved around them. “I will be with you at any time; don't worry,” she said in a party statement.

The opposition parties including DMK had been critical of the ruling AIADMK's handling of the northeast monsoon, particularly training their guns against the government over the discharge of excess water from Chembarambakkam reservoir into Adyar river, claiming it had flooded the city. They had alleged red-tapism on the issue with DMK knocking the doors of Tamil Nadu Governor K Rosaiah with a plea for a judicial probe into the matter even as others like CPI (M) and PMK have also been demanding an inquiry commission to probe the matter.
