COIMBATORE: M K Stalin, the Tamil Nadu chief minister, will attend a government function in Kinathukadavu district in Coimbatore district on August 24, according to electricity minister V Senthil Balaji.Balaji told reporters that he would give back to 82,000 people on his visit, after carrying out an inspection in waterlogged areas in the evening.According to him, the government has ok'd Rs 9 crore for the widening of a drainage canal parallel the Trichy Road to a distance of 2.1 kilometers.In this regard, a government order has been issued.The absence of a large canal triggered waterlogging, causing public disruption during the monsoon season.The outlet of Valankulam was mistakenly designed in Smart City works, which resulted in a delay in the excess water draining from the waterbody.It was corrected last year, he said.The state government has been given plans to build left-over roads and drainage channels for Rs 200 crore. In the last month, 35,000 old power poles were replaced with new ones in the state as a monsoon precautionary measure.According to he, 1.33 lakh poles and 10,000 km length electrical lines are in stock.Only Valparai got heavy rain in Coimbatore, but there was no harm.The CM had taken elaborate measures for rain preparedness, according to the minister. He also met with people who were in reformed camps because of the rain's stagnation.
