Delay in shifting the shop irks them

A group of residents of Thuvakudimalai on the city’s outskirts vent their ire over the functioning of a TASMAC outlet in their area by laying siege to the shop on Thursday.

They resorted to the step after their repeated requests to shift the shop situated along Akbar Salai failed to elicit any response from the officials.

Irked over the delay in shifting the shop, a group of residents sat in front of the shop demanding that the outlet be relocated immediately.

The functioning of the shop in the bazaar area posed problems to the public as tipplers often created nuisance, said Lenin, a member of the Democratic Youth Federation of India.

Revenue and police officials held talks with the protesting public and assured them of action to shift the shop.
