The Namakkal district administration has convened talks on Monday to amicably settle the controversy over the book Madhorubhagan authored by Perumal Murugan.

On the direction of the District Collector V. Dakshinamoorthy, V. R. Subbulakshmi, District Revenue Officer, will hold talks at the collectorate here on Monday.

A press release issued by Mr. Dakshinamoorthy here on Sunday said that the district administration took steps to settle the issue amicably even before a group of people decided to resort to agitations.

The Collector had directed Revenue Divisional Officer, Tiruchengode, to hold negotiations with two groups on January 8. Both the groups were extended invitation to participate in the talks.

However, one group abstained without informing the authorities.

Despite sincere efforts, the authorities could not get in touch with the representatives of this group. Hence, the issue could not be settled then.
