Collector receives 282 petitions

At the public grievance redressal  day meeting, held at the Collector's Office under the chairmanship of District Collector Mr. H. Krishnanunni, 282 petitions related to old age, widow, destitute pensions, education loan, business loan, drinking water facility, road facility, infrastructure development etc were received.  

The District Collector  handed them over to the concerned departmental officers and ordered immediate action on them.  

He also reviewed the petitions  sent to the Chief Minister's office. Following this, the  Collector presented a cheque for Rs. 25,000, Rs. 20000, and Rs.15000 to 3 sericulture farmers for their achievements. 
The meeting was attended by all department heads including District Revenue Officer Mrs. S. Santhoshini Chandra, District Supply Officer Mrs. Ilahijan, District Adithravidar and Tribal Welfare Officer Mrs. Meenakshi, District Welfare Officer for the Disabled Mrs. Kothaiselvi, Assistant Director (Development) Mr. M. Sivanathan.  
TVK plea: The executives of TN Vazhvurimai Katchi (TVK) led by Gopu Kopu, chanted slogans such as 'Expel, expel, Northerners, do not attack the police'. In a petition, they said '' crime is on the rise in TN due to Northerners who are gradually occupying the education and employment opportunity in Tamil Nadu.  

This was followed by an incident in Modakkurichi where youths from the North India  attacked the police severely.  

Therefore, the entry of them should be restricted and monitored. For this, a separate law should be enacted in the current session of the Assembly.  Similarly, the police should set up a special unit to monitor the people of the North.  Northerners involved in crime should be expelled from Tamil Nadu immediately.

  The respective factories should immediately send back the northerners who are overworked in the factories in Erode.  Otherwise, the party would stage a sit-in stir in front of the private factories where many  Northerners work, they said.
