Yaas cyclone impact | compensation for those who lost their house and crops in Kanya kumari | KS Alagiri, chairman of the TN Congress Committee, urged the TN govt.

KS Alagiri, Chairman of the Tamil Nadu Congress Committee, urged the Tamil Nadu government to provide immediate compensation to the people who lost their houses and crops due to the heavy rains caused by the Yaas storm.

KS Alagiri urged the Tamilnadu government for compensation.

Tamil Nadu Congress Committee Chairman KS Alagiri has demanded that seed paddy be provided for paddy cultivation due to the Yas storm and that compensation be given to farmers for planting.

He said in a statement:  Due to the yaas storm, Kanyakumari district has received heavy rains for the last 3 days.  Hundreds of trees were uprooted and uprooted by the storm.

Impact of yaas cyclone in kanyakumari.

Due to the continuous rains, floods have occurred in Kothaiyaru, Kuzhithurai Tamiraparani and Valliyar rivers and water has infiltrated into many towns.  Coconut groves in flood prone areas of Kulachal Kurumbana and Rajakamangalam.

In Nagercoil, water seeped into houses due to a breach in the Putheri area below the Valavadi canal which carries water to Putheri and Nedunkulam. 

Huge damage to the paddy fields and banana plantations.

In addition, 10 acres of paddy fields were damaged.  The 60-acre paddy field planted in ten areas was also flooded and crop damage was reported.  As many as 151 fishermen have been affected by heavy rains in the Kulachal area, flooding the houses of fishermen along the AVM canal.

Similarly, the Mukkadal dam has overflowed and caused flood damage to banana plantations and coconut groves.  As farmers have not yet recovered from the effects of the last hurricane, Yass has caused great damage.

The previous AIADMK government did not pay compensation for crop damage caused by the Oki storm.  However, it is reassuring that the Tamil Nadu government has asked farmers affected by the Yaas storm to submit documents to seek compensation.

Kanyakumari has become a floodplain.

Due to heavy rains and floods, all paddy crops have been severely affected.  Paddy crops have been damaged by continuous rains.  Provide seed paddy for replanting and provide compensation to farmers for replanting.

Kanyakumari Lok Sabha Congress Member Vijay Vasant, Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly Congress Vice President S. Rajeshkumar and Congress MPs JG Prince and S. Vijayatharani are providing relief aid to the affected people.

Therefore, I urge the Government of Tamil Nadu to expedite the payment of compensation to the people who lost their homes and farmers who lost their crops as Kanyakumari has become a floodplain. “
