Activists of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) observed a fast on Friday, urging Chief Minister Jayalalithaa to fulfil her promise made during her last Assembly election campaign of upgrading the Primary Health Centre (PHC) here into a 30-bed PHC.

With Kalasapakkam MLA Agri S.S. Krishnamoorthi no longer remaining Minister, residents feel they are losing hope that the poll promise would automatically be fulfilled, sources said.

District secretary of the CPI(M) M. Veerabadran, district secretariat members Kannan, M.Sivakumar and town secretary Yunus took part in the fast.
