Traffic on East Coast Road near Idaikazhinadu was affected for a brief period on Tuesday morning after a group of people squatted on the carriageway at around 10-30 a.m. protesting non-availability of proper treatment facilities at Kadapakkam primary health centre.

The demonstrators alleged that only one doctor out of the sanctioned strength of 2 was available at the PHC.
