TN Minister S P Velumani prays for rain at Church, Dargah

Coimbatore: Tamilnadu, especially Chennai, has been reeling under severe water crisis. AIADMK leaders have been conducting poojas and havans, praying for rain, at various temples across the State.

Yesterday, Municipal Administration Minister S P Velumani performed a yagna at a temple here in Coimbatore district. Following this, he visited St Mark’s Church and Hazarat Musa Avulia Dargah and offered his prayers.

Speaking to reporters about the same, he said groundwater level at many regions has gone down and the Palaniswamy government has made arrangements to distribute water to all water-starved areas.

Meanwhile, the Opposition DMK staged demonstrations with empty pots, urging the government to take steps to address the issue immediately.
