DHARMAPURI: The parents of mentally challenged and disabled 17-year-old A. Velmurugan visited the Collectorate here on Monday seeking financial support.
Residing at Obilinayakanahalli near Kadathur, the father of the bed-ridden teenager, T. Mahalingam, a farm labourer, said they had submitted several petitions at the Pappireddypatti taluk office and district rehabilitation office, but to no avail. Even they had visited the Collectorate twice and submitted memorandums to officials. However, nothing has happened.
He said that Velmurugan could not sit or stand nor speak or hear. The couple has two other school-going children.
They hope that at least this time they may get some solace.
