My Story: Relief Services Forced To Put Amma Stickers On Donated Relief Materials

Bharat Nayak

December 5th, 2015

We have heard a lot about how politicians try to cash on every opportunity, but this is a new low. When Chennai was getting deluged by heavy rains, people helped themselves and came out of this tragedy. Now, when people from different states are sending relief materials for Chennaities, the vehicles carrying relief materials are being stopped and stickers of Jayalaitha are forcibly being pasted on them. If someone refuses, then that relief material is not allowed to pass.
Here is first-person account out of numerous people complaining about it.

“6 trucks coming from Coimbatore. . Stopped at the Sriperumbudur. . And Amma stickers stuck on every pack and sent in.

Friends, just putting my anguish. Many of my friends who had gone to cuddalore with relief materials complained that thugs and goons are forcibly pasting Amma stickers on every box and only then clearing the   vehicles. Shameless political tactics . I am even ashamed to talk about this but at the same time feel that people in interiors will be blindly believing this as amma’s work. Cheap and dirty than shit!

Guys I think we must forward this in every group … This is absolutely ridiculous”
