Around 500 people from Verkilampi town panchayat led by the chairperson of town panchayat, Jeya Manoharan, held a demonstration in front of the Collectorate on Monday to urge the district administration to find an early solution to their 10-point charter of demands including provision of infrastructure facilities to their areas.

Jeya Manoharan said that the Government did not take any steps to carry out maintenance work on various roads for the last seven years which has affected the smooth flow of traffic in their areas particularly in Kumarankudi, Poovancode and Chenkodi.

The protestors also demanded the Government to ensure supply of potable water to the residents of town panchayat and allot adequate houses under the green house scheme for their benefit.
