It's disappointing that the CM is misinformed about the city : P Aiyarappan
“The CM travelled on the same road for campaigning but did not utter a word about widening it,” P Aiyarappan.
Many had anticipated some promises from the Chief Minister on finishing incomplete infrastructure projects, which are in large quantities, when he campaigned in Trichy on Monday. Nevertheless, what they got was absolute silence on certain issues and unreasonable promises on demands, triggering much dissatisfaction.
Palaniswami spoke about Trichy, as he campaigned at Gandhi Market, being designated as one of the smart : cities in the state and efforts taken for regaining the Ariyamangalam dump yard through bio mining. Nevertheless, on the decades-old petition to establish a combined bus terminus (IBT), the CM said that it will come up at Kottapattu, a location which was found impracticable and the plan dropped.. "It is disappointing to note that the CM is misinformed and not updated about the city's crucial IBT project. Kottapattu was rejected as it was unviable but the CM is giving an assurance that IBT will come up at Kottapattu," K Shyam Sundar, a resident of Thiruverumbur, said.
A section of traders conveyed dissatisfaction at the CM not giving any guarantee not to shift the market to the city suburbs, while he was campaigning at Gandhi Market. "We have been asking the state government to widen Karur road for years but adequate funds were not sanctioned. Ironically, the CM travelled on the same road for campaigning but did not utter a word about widening it," P Aiyarappan, a resident of Allur, said.
In the meantime, police personnel detained a farmer, M Chinnadurai, at Allithurai on Monday as he was preparing a petition to submit to the CM. "I was detained for a while by police just because they thought I may stage a protest during his visit," he said.
