CHENNAI: DMK leader and Kolathur MLA, MK Stalin, approached the Madras High Court alleging that his constituency’s civil needs are deliberately being ignored by the State government.
In his petition, Stalin alleged that the State government and the Chennai Corporation has been lethargic in fulfilling the basic needs of his constituency. While the civic needs and water problems are being ignored, infrastructure development has been stalled by the government, he added.
Claiming that about 406 applications made by the people of his constituency under various welfare schemes have seen no action, the petitioner sought the Court to direct the State government and concerned authorities to take action on representations made by him in this regard.
Admitting the petition, Justice M Sathyanarayanan directed the government advocate to get instructions on the issue and posted the matter to July 22.
