AIADMK workers formed long lines and were standing in groups to welcome the Chief Minister who was on his way to Tiruvallur district.
Another video from Chennai showed the Chief Minister greeting students from the convoy. A group of students taking a video of the convoy thanked EPS for announcing no exams for all engineering students, barring those in final-year.
Edappadi K Palaniswami issued orders on August 26 cancelling exams of all college students, including arrear exams. However, those in final year will have to take the exams. Following this, many publications carried pages of advertisement by students thanking the Chief Minister for the announcement.
Meanwhile, EPS on Tuesday held a meet with the health professionals and doctors at the Secretariat in Chennai. The Chief Minister said, “If people have fever or headache, I am hearing that they are unable to receive treatment from the hospital. To help those people, we are planning to set up 2,000 mini-clinics.”
Stating that there are chances for infection while using public transportation, he said, “We need more bed facilities, additional doctors and nurses. They have informed me that there are vacancies so the government will take efforts to fill the vacancies and appoint nurses.”
“The government will not allow even one loss of life. We do not care about the expenditure saving the lives of people is the responsibility of human beings,” he added.
