As the wall in question is on government land, the issue will be sorted out quickly, hoped Kodumudi town panchayat officials.

The land had been acquired by the revenue department some years ago for providing patta house sites to over 300 Dalit families.

The panchayat authorities also told ‘Express’ that neither the ward member of Nagapalayam, also a Dalit woman, nor the Dalits in the colony raised the issue in any fora so far.

There are three to four other pathways for the Dalits to reach the main road from their colony and to the temple. When the land was acquired for the SC housing scheme, the wall also existed in the land.

But, the revenue officials did not remove the wall as none in the Dalit colony raised objection then, they added.
