Thiruvananthapuram: Opposition Congress leader Ramesh Chennithala Friday hit out at the State government's alleged lackadaisical attitude in taking action over various complaints he had submitted on flood relief and said he would approach the High Court for relief.
The leader of the Opposition in the state assembly had collected and submitted to various district collectors, complaints of people from various flood-hit districts with regard to flood relief.
In a release, Ramesh Chennithala alleged that the collectors have not taken any action on about 10,000 complaints that he had collected from various taluks in the state.
"The complaints handed over were from ten taluks spreading over six flood-affected districts of the state. Those flood victims, when they approach the district collectors for knowing the status of their complaints, are treated badly," he said.
The congress leader also said he plans to approach the high court pointing out that even after three months have passed after submitting the complaints, no action has been taken.
According to the amicus curiae report submitted to the court recently, the August floods had claimed 433 human lives, affected 5.4 million people and displaced 1.4 million.
The total loss incurred by the state was to the tune of Rs 26,720 crore.
