A group of residents from five villages under Radhapuram panchayat union submitted a petition at the Collectorate on Tuesday in protest against attaching their hamlets with ward 7 after delimitation.

They said that Kariyakulam, Ganapathi Nagar, Chemmankulam, Subramaniaperi and Thiagarajapuram of ward 8 had been merged with ward 7. “These villages house important facilities such as taluk office, block development office, veterinary hospital and government hospital, and annexing with ward 7 will cause needless difficulties to the residents. Hence these villages should be retained in ward 8 itself,” the petitioners said.
