Be concerned, not dramatic for Cuddalore: Siddharth

Chennai, Dec 8 (IANS) Actor Siddharth, who extended help to the people of rain-hit Cuddalore district, says the conditions there are being exaggerated. And all that people need to do is be concerned, rather than act dramatic.


Cuddalore, a coastal town, was one of worst affected places due to the heavy downpour in Tamil Nadu over the last few weeks.

“We went to 15 villages. Many of these were described as drowning, starving, and unserviced on social media. Not true. Do not comment on Cuddalore from outside. There are places that are struggling. Do not confuse relief work. Be concerned. Not dramatic,” Siddharth posted on his Twitter page on Tuesday.

He further added that Cuddalore needs help, not panic.

“Send bedding, blankets, and mosquito coil. Send smaller trucks that can go on kuchha roads and identify groups that are addressing the hard to reach hamlets. Prioritize small villages away from main road and doAnot use relief labels or banners on trucks as they will be attacked,” he said.

He also requested volunteers to seek police help.
