To a query on whether former Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami would face action over the Thoothukudi police firing incident as seen to be from various points of view, Kanimozhi told reporters that the question obviously becomes justifiable and the Chief Minister will take necessary action.
Earlier, Kanimozhi inspected stormwater drainage works in progress as part of Smart Cities Mission project at a cost of Rs. 400 crore under the limits of Thoothukudi Corporation.

Moreover, she said efforts are on to place motorized pumps to evacuate any stagnant rainwater.
