MLA blames City Corporation for flooding

A war of words broke out between Hibi Eden, MLA, and Mayor Soumini Jain over the monsoon preparedness even as many parts of the city were flooded on the second consecutive day on Monday.

Mr. Eden said it was the failure of the Kochi Corporation in carrying out timely and effective pre-monsoon preparedeness programmes that led to the flooding in the city.

Ms. Jain said the local body had implemented pre-monsoon works well in advance.

P. T. Thomas, MLA, demanded immediate steps for supporting the affected population.
