TIRUCHI: The Collector, K. Nanda Kishore, ordered the immediate removal of weeds from the Koraiyar river in the district.

Mr. Kishore, who inspected the river on Monday, sanctioned Rs.1 lakh for the purpose on the spot. A similar exercise was already taken up at the Kudamuritti river in the city in the wake of the recent floods and rain.
