Video of Tamil nadu BJP leader Annamalai posing for pictures while visiting the houses in Chennai to know about their problems in order to solve them, became a subject to severe online troll as it shows the politician conducting a photo shoot while sitting in a boat surrounded by water. Politicians meeting people to gain publicity amidst this situation is common but the making video of the BJP leader’s photo shoot got leaked only to get trolled by the netizens.
Since Saturday, heavy rainfall overwhelmed Chennai and neighbouring areas, leading to waterlogging in several places. Chennai city received around 20 cm of rain on Sunday. India Meteorological Department has predicted more rains for Chennai, other regions of Tamil Nadu and surrounding states such as Andhra Pradesh in the next 48 hours.
The reason behind the continuous rain is another low-key pressure system that has formed over the Bay of Bengal that is set to reach Tamil Nadu by November 11. The civic authorities are clearing waterlogged areas on the war-footing levels. Red alert has been provided to Chennai city on 10th of November and holidays were announced to schools and colleges.
It pains to see our dearest Chennaities suffering.— K.Annamalai (@annamalai_k) November 9, 2021
Roads are completely water logged, ruling party @arivalayam MLA’s are not seen in the ground, water entering people’s homes thereby crippling their lives.@CMOTamilnadu needs to act now & act fast!#BJP4ChennaiFloodRelief pic.twitter.com/tEg9WJaxxQ
Tamil Chief minister MK Stalin, Leader of opposition Edappadi K Pazhaniswamy and many other political leaders are visiting places across the city and meeting people to know about their hardships in order to resolve the issues. Meanwhile, a video of Tamil nadu BJP leader K Annamalai visiting an area with the help of a boat which has knee deep water and participating in a photo shoot going viral across the social media platforms.
On Tuesday noon, Annamalai came up with a series of pictures of himself traveling in boat and wrote “It’s shameful one has to go in a boat to our @CMOTamilnadu @mkstalin avl own Kolathur constituency. He is the MLA here for 10 years+! Streets water logged, electricity not there in most of the houses & people losing their daily livelihoods! This has been an yearly occurrence!” in his tweet.

In a video that got surfaced later, Annamalai caught pretending to be inquiring a lady who is a resident in the area about the situation. Throughout the video, a voice could be heard instructing the people around to move and pose appropriately to click pictures. Two men could be seen effortlessly walking in the water near the boat of Annamalai which caused severe troll in online platforms.

On seeing the two boys, the man who is instructing asks them to move and ends up changing the angle to hide the original level of water. A Twitter user asked whether it is a film shooting whereas another asked “Short Film-ah Anna ??”
