After deciding on the broad infrastructure aspects relating to the World Classical Tamil Conference, the administration here is getting into specific ones that will help in making the conduct of the meet and related events smooth.

As part of the minute focus, the Coimbatore Corporation will prepare a blue print of the locations of drinking water tanks and mobile toilets on Avanashi Road that participants in the rally and onlookers will use during the rally to be taken out as the World Classical Tamil Conference in the city in June.

The call for the blue print was given by District Collector P. Umanath at the City Development Committee meeting held at the Corporation on Wednesday.

Only then could the district administration and the Corporation co-ordinate with the police on planning all the necessary arrangements.

Chairman of the committee and Mayor of Coimbatore R. Venkatachalam, Corporation Commissioner Anshul Mishra, Special Officer for the meet S. Prabhakaran and officials of the Tamil Nadu Water Supply and Drainage Board, Tamil Nadu Electricity Board, National and State Highways and the Corporation took part in the meeting.

The committee was formed to carry out the infrastructure development works for the conference that would be held here from June 23 to 27.

The Collector pointed out that enough police presence would have to be ensured at the drinking water points as any scramble at these spots could to lead to trouble.

Water tanks

Refilling of water tanks would also have to be made. For this, hassle-free routes to the tanks would have to be earmarked in the blue print.

Unless all these were on the blue print, the police would not be able to decide where its personnel would have to be posted.

The Corporation Commissioner said the print would be prepared soon after identifying the locations for the water tanks and the toilets.

On behalf of the committee, the Mayor gave a call to the owners of the residential and commercial buildings on Avanashi Road to give a fresh coat of paint to the structures prior to the rally.
