People resorted to road roko in Krishnagiri on Friday demanding for better sewage facility. The protest held on Pazhaiyapet to 5 roads junction on Kuppam road.
Hundreds of families are residing in Nallathambi Chetty street in 12th ward in Pazhaiyapet area in Krishnagiri. In recent rains, this area was worst affected with water logging in many areas.
Kamalakannan, Media Wing President of Krishnagiri District Congress, led the protest and said that there is no proper sewage facility in this area. So every year during monsoons, this area is much affected due to water stagnation and spread of contiguous diseases.
The police and municipality officials rushed to the spot and held talks with the protestors. On assurance from the officials of addressing the civic issue at the earliest, the protestors dispersed.
