DMK chief M Karunanidhi on Saturday urged the Tamil Nadu government to take up on war-footing relief works in the cyclone Nilam affected districts.

"In particular, delta and coastal districts have been severely affected. Thousands of hectares of crops have been submerged in water and farmers are worried over crop loss," he said.

Responding to a set of questions in party mouthpiece Murasoli, he said that people in many affected areas had been complaining that officials had not even visited them.

"Without further delay, government should take up on war-footing the relief work and the government machinery should be effectively used for this purpose," he said.
