The Hindu, 04 February, 2014


We want:Residents of Kodangipatti Arundathiyar Colony blocking the road on Monday.

KARUR: Residents belonging to the Arundathiyar Colony at Kodangipatti village resorted to a demonstration and road blockade here on Monday demanding improvement in basic amenities and better water supply in their area.

The protestors claimed that they have been voicing their grievances for a long time but to no avail.

Drinking water was being supplied to their area only once in a month and the promised water supply from River Cauvery too has not yet materialised, they said.


Public convenience


Lack of access to clean and hygienic public convenience is forcing residents to resort to open defecation, they said.


Residents blocked traffic at Kodangipatti for more than three hours . Karur Tahsildar Rajagopal and police officials held consultations with them and the protestors withdrew their road blockade.
