VELLORE: Around 30 people residing in wards 41, 43, and 45 laid a siege to the Corporation office here on Friday demanding drinking water supply and a solution to drainage problems. They complained that that they had not been supplied water for more than a fortnight and that drainage had not been cleaned for months.

The residents had petitioned Mayor P Karthiyayini to supply drinking water and  clean the drainage. Residents of Periya Allapuram, Sivaraj Nagar, Ambedkar Nagar, Thangavel Nagar and surrounding areas claimed that they had no access to public toilets. “We complained many times to the councillor but he didn’t take any action.” they said.

Forty-first ward councillor K Suriyachari said,“I asked zonal III officials to propose a subject to take out the drainage to Virupachipuram and Velapadi sewage canal through Arni- Bagayam road but  no action has been taken as of now.”
