Water for parched Chennai reached the city on Friday, but the residents still wait for relief as the water will be carried to households only after inauguration by ministers. Sources said that the lawmakers would at least take an hour before the train is inaugurated.

The train with 50 tank wagons (BTPN), with 50,000 litres of water in each, left Jolarpettai at 7.20 am. Jolarpettai is 217 km away from Chennai in Tamil Nadu's Vellore district.
