Minister asks officials to complete AAP works within a month

Housing Minister S Muthusamy asked the officials to complete the Athikadavu Avinasi water project work within one month. There was a smooth outcome in the talks held by him with the farmers to lay the main pipeline for the project. To alleviate the drought in some areas of Erode, Tirupur and Coimbatore districts, the project was planned in the previous regime and the works were started at an estimated cost of Rs.1,620 crore.

Currently, 95 percent of the  project work was completed. Main pipeline laying work for 800 meters in agricultural land and 150 meters in the highway are pending at Kanthampalayam of Mullampatti panchayat, Perundurai block as the officials  have not agreed to pay the compensation demanded by the farmers concerned to lay the pipe in the agricultural land. After learning about this, the Minister came to Nasianur Pudupalayam yesterday and went  to the house of Periyavelappan, the representative of the farmers, where he negotiated with the farmers who were the landowners. PWD officials took part in the talks.

He said that the farmers will be given appropriate compensation. Following the amicable outcome, the farmers agreed to install Athikadavu-Avinasi pipelines through their land.  Following this, he ordered the officials to complete the pending pipeline work within a month.
