Residents of Pallakkuma Nagar and Kapali Thottam came out this morning on to the Luz Circle to protest responses of their local area councillor to the effects of the deluge. They blocked traffic for a while and then dispersed. Local police took positions to restrict the protestors and restore smooth traffic flow.
The people said they were cut up with councillor Jhansi Rani ( AIADMK) for not touring the dense colonies off Luz Circle to give relief after the deluge last week.
This morning when Rani and her team arrived with milk supplies to share with the community, tempers flared up and led to the public protest.
