Tamil Nadu Governor Banwarilal Purohit on Monday inspected several schemes under Swachh Bharat Mission in Salem.
As there was a black flag demonstration by various political parties against his visit to review the works and discussion with the officials, Purohit cancelled his scheduled visit to Tholasampatti in Omalur, some 15 km from Salem to inspect a Green House project.
He reviewed the progress of Green House projects and also ration shops in Thindamangalam.
He also inspected the toilets constructed under Swatch Bharat Mission. Meanwhile, some political parties criticised the officials, who allegedly dumped garbage near a school premises to facilitate the Governor to sweep the road.
Similarly, Purohit also reviewed the projects in new bus stand in Salem, where he inspected the toilets. Late in the evening, Purohit received over 100 petitions from the general public in the Inspection Bungalow.
Earlier in the day, the Governor inaugurated a five-day 41 Indian Social Science Congress being held at Periyar University.
