Declare 13th of November a holiday due to heavy rains in Chennai

This petition had 38 supporters

Hello ,

  This is a cry for help.Due to heavy and poor infrastructure, hundreds died in Chennai back in 2015.Let's not repeat history.Recently a young girl got electrocuted by flooded waters and broken electric cables.She died before she had the chance to even that water could conduct electricity.The government often declares holidays when it's hardly even raining and does not declare a holiday when there is a dire need.This is one of those moments.We all know the disadvantages of flooding and the tremendous impact it creates on the people.Diseases are spreading at an alarming rate due to water-borne diseases.Due to heavy rains, the rate of traffic increases.This is also a major contributor to the death toll because nobody can make way for ambulances.

I'm not saying that declaring holidays for schools in Chennai will solve the problem.But I think it will help the authorities to take action and makes the process easier.
