New association in Mudichur

Traffic Ramaswamy inaugurates it

A new voluntary organisation, christened ‘Joint Hands of India,’ has been formed in Mudichur. It is the brainchild of M.R. Sai Sampath Kumar, a social activist and a resident of Mudichur. K.R. Ramaswamy (popularly known as Traffic Ramaswamy,) a social activist, inaugurated the organisation recently.

Sampath Kumar says, “The organisation will strive to solve long-pending civic problems plaguing the residents of Mudichur. We will take up the civic problems with the authorities concerned at regular intervals. As a first step, we will urge the State government to desilt and deepen waterbodies in Kancheepuram district and remove encroachments in the lake area. Besides, we will ask the officials to conduct medical camps at Primary Health Centres (PHCs), twice a year.”

Plans are on to plant native saplings in and around Mudichur. Recently, members of the organisation distributed essential grocery items, tooth brushes and pastes, soaps, tumblers, plates, water bottles, mosquito coils and nets, bedsheets, towels and medicine to 100 persons affected by cyclone ‘Gaja’ in Sankenthi and Edaiyur villages in Tiruvarur district.

Under the second phase, members will distribute relief material to 150 people in the cyclone-affected villages. As part of dengue awareness campaign, members distributed Nilavembu concoction to the residents of Mudichur and Varadharajapuram.

“We are planning to organise free general health and eye camps and fund for the education of four meritorious underprivileged students from coming academic year,” adds Sampath Kumar. The office-bearers of the organisation are: M.G. Anandaraj, secretary; S. Pandian, treasurer; and executive committe members are M. Verghese, K. Perumal, M. Narayanaswamy, S. Suresh, K. Bhavanidharan and M. Kumar. M.R. Sai Sampath Kumar can be contacted at 8332020198.
