Fifteen councillors out of the 18-member Ayakudi town panchayat observed fast in the town here on Wednesday demanding announcement of a date for convening a council meeting. The town panchayat administration had postponed the meeting without announcing any fresh date. It was said that this had been deliberately done as the councillors had planned to bring a no confidence motion against president Sivagnanam.

Earlier, they had boycotted two council meeting to show their lack of confidence in him.
