Members of the People’s Welfare Front on Friday passed a resolution demanding the city corporation to repair all the damaged roads here in the Front’s representatives’ meeting.
Members passed resolutions asking the Government to find a permanent solution to the issues relating to Avinashilingam University and the corruption scandals in the city corporation.
They alleged that the management, which had been receiving funds from the Ministry of Human Resource Development thus far was trying to convert the university into a self-financing one.
They further demanded to remove the current Chancellor P.R. Krishnakumar and demanded that the Government should take control of the university for the benefit of the students of the university.
Alleging that the development works in all the 100 wards in Coimbatore had been hit by corruption scandals; they said that the roads were largely damaged because the Corporation had dug pits for cable laying.
“The drinking water distribution should be improved and all the encroachment from water bodies should be cleared and the water bodies should be desilted so as to save rain water during the monsoon,” a resolution said.
They also condemned the high toll fee collected at Sengapalli Walayar Road tollgate and demanded that the Avinashi Athikadavu Scheme should be completed for the benefit of the people of Coimbatore, Tirupur and Erode.
The members observed a moment of silence for the people who lost their lives in the floods in Chennai and Cuddalore.
