Tension prevailed at Kothamangalam, near Alangudi, of Pudukottai district on Sunday after angry villagers set ablaze five government vehicles, alleging the government of not taking proper post-disaster management measures in the village. The incident led to the arrest of around 50 protesters.

Sources said a large number of police personnel from neighbouring districts like Trichy, Perambalur and Ariyalur, have been deployed at Kothamangalam after cyclone attack. Prompted by a lack of rescue measures, the villagers staged rod roko on Saturday night. Many alleged the government was yet to take action properly even a day after the disaster left a lasting damage in the region.

At this time, Alangudi tahsildar Rethinavathy paid a visit to the village, taking stock of the situation. The residents confronted her, questioning the officer over the measures adopted to minimise the damage. Pudukottai district revenue officer (DRO) A Ramasamy, revenue divisional officer Daisy Kumar and Alangudi deputy superintendent of police G Ayyanar then rushed to the spot for a conciliatory talk.
