TIRUCHI: The Communist Party of India (CPI) urged Tiruchi Corporation to initiate stringent action against those involved in the illegal tapping of drinking water using motors.

Such an illegal act indulged in by a few led to artificial scarcity of water affecting a large section of the city residents.

The Corporation should deal with such people with iron hands, a resolution adopted at the city committee meeting of the CPI held here on Wednesday said.

Another resolution said the inordinate delay in the laying of service roads from Palpannai junction to Thuvakudi on the Tiruchi-Thanjavur national highway is posing a threat to the road-users and the local residents.

The people have launched various agitations to press for the service roads. The state government and the district administration should take initiative for the laying of service road without any delay.

Collection of donations

The collection of donations from the parents for the admissions to private schools and colleges is going on unchecked. The state government and the district administration should put an end to this illegal practice in the initial stage itself.

Yet another resolution pointed out that the Konakkarai grave yard road from Woraiyur to Kudmurutti is in a bad condition. The Corporation should take steps for the relaying of this road, besides putting an end to the dumping of garbage in the vicinity of grave yard.

G. Gunasekaran presided over the meeting, in which city secretary of the party, K. Suresh, deputy secretary, A. K. Dravidamani and others spoke.
