Municipal Administration Minister K.N. Nehru and Health and Family Welfare Minister Ma. Subramanian inspected localities in Saidapet that are prone to water stagnation.

They inspected Bazaar Road, Divan Bashyam Thottam, Subramanian Salai, Tiruvalluvar Salai, and Jones Salai. In Subramanian Salai and Tiruvalluvar Salai, sources in the Greater Chennai Corporation said, the Ministers suggested increasing the carrying capacity of the drain as the present capacity was low.
