A week without water, thirsty resettled families stage protests, call for TNSCB to act
The families, that include school-going children, sleep in public toilets and railway stations at nights.
These families who lived very close to the Vanagaram fish market are worried how their childrens' education will pan out as relocation means shifting to new schools.
Only 11 of the 58 anganwadis are functioning at the relocation sight in Perumbakkam.
Construction of the buildings was over 3 years ago but education department is yet to start schools in it.
Shifted to Perumbakkam about 30 kms away from their earlier residence, many in the new locality find very fewer opportunities to earn their bread.
As the sole doctor stays only for two hours, the hospital staff and until recently, even a sanitary worker, was prescribing medicines the rest of the day.
Households in blocks 65 and 66 barely receive four pots of water each on alternate days
Water crisis for over 200 families who live in the tail end blocks of Perumbakkam resettlement colony is far from over as each get an average of only four pots of water once in two days.
The tenements currently come under the Pallikaranai station limits.
