Collector agrees to meet farmers on February 15

Tiruvallur district administration has agreed to hold talks with Tamil Nadu Vivasayigal Sangam on February 15 over the issue of distributing government lands allegedly in possession of Karnataka High Court Chief Justice P.D. Dinakaran to landless poor in Kaverirajapuram village.

This was conveyed by district project officer Meganathan to office-bearers and members of the sangam when they organised picketing on Wednesday to highlight their demands.

“We made it clear that neither the commission looking into the allegations against Mr. Dinakaran nor the mapping of Kaverirajapuram village by the Survey of India have anything to do with distribution of land,” P. Shanmugam, general secretary of the sangam told The Hindu.

According to Mr. Shanmugam, the project officer agreed with the argument of the sangam, but expressed his inability to give any commitment since District Collector V. Palanikumar was away in Pune, attending a training programme.

Later Mr. Meganathan contacted the Collector and he had agreed to meet sangam representatives on February 15.

On the same day the Survey of India officials will hold discussions with the district administration.
