While good samaritans from all across India are collecting and distributing relief materials including food to those affected by the devastating floods in Chennai, politicians are trying to grab the limelight in a rather cheap way.
Vehicles carrying relief materials are being stopped and stickers of Jayalaithaa are forcibly being pasted on them. If someone refuses, then that relief material is not allowed to pass.
In another location, son of former chief minister O Paneerselvam was seen serving food to flood victims in front of a mini cut-out of Jayalalithaa.
Earlier, Jaya supporters had put out a poster depicting her as Shivagami in the movie Baahubali, thanking her for saving people from the flood.
While there is no denial that the Tamil Nadu government is making all efforts to control the damage, these kind of publicity stunts are definitely taking the sheen away from whatever they are doing.

Unforgivable appeasement by AIADMK goons. Rescue vehicles are stopped to paste #AMMA s face on them. She is not giving money from her pocket
