Parliamentary Affairs Minister M Venkaiah Naidu said the government is willing to extend all support, saying "This is not just a Chennai problem; it is a problem of the entire country."

"The situation in Chennai is really very serious. It is becoming grim day by day with regard to flooding of the city. It's a very precarious situation, something unprecedented in 100 years," Naidu told the media here.

Naidu also cited the government of India is in touch with the state administration and extending whatever support is required.

"NDRF teams have been sent, Army and Navy has been alerted whatever support they need that is being extended. The earlier SDRF amount sanctioned which wasn't released has been released, and also another 500 crores, total together around 930 crores have been released," he added.
