Vokkaligas lodge complaint in SP office at Erode

Vokkaligas lodge complaint in SP office at Erode

Many Vokkaligas of Pattaramangalam village near Bavanisagar led by Vokkaliga People's welfare association  state president and retired DSP Velliangiri lodged a complaint in the Erode SP office alleging that some SC people of the area tried to grab 2.5 acre land given to the association by the government 70 years back. Already the government offered 3 acres to them in the same Pattaramangalam village near Bavanisagar and another 3 acre to the SCs. The SCs built houses in their land and after that due to their pressure, Vokkaligas offered 50 cent land to them. So, in the remaining 2.50 acre land Vokkaligas built Mahaliamman temple. But now the SCs of the area demanded such land also to build community hall. When Vokkaligas resisted it, the SCs led by Adhi Thamizhar Peravai functionaries lodged a complaint against the Vokkaligas. So, Bavanisagar police registered a case under the SC ST prevention of atrocities Act against some Vokkaligas of the village which has 200 families. Now they were under threat and were living with fear there. They appealed to the SP to protect their interest, land and withdraw the case registered on the basis of false complaint of SCs
