In the name of DEVELOPMENT, this small town, is a stinking garbage can these days!
Another incident from the outskirts of Chennai showed how grave the problem is. A two-and-a-half year old boy Dhaksinamurthy in Perunkalathur died of the mysterious fever recently. Residents feel that perennial sewage overflow in their locality had led to mosquitoes breeding which in turn has caused the spread of the disease.
After their repeated demands went unheeded, residents of Velu Nagar at Perunkalathur proposed to constitute ‘Velu Nagar Residents Association’ shortly to attend to their problems,’ said Mohammed Dastagir.
