Councillors: Vellalore Garbage Yard Ops Shrouded In Mystery | Coimbatore News – Times of India

Coimbatore: City corporation councillors on Friday alleged that the operation of Vellalore garbage yard was shrouded in mystery.
Speaking at the council meeting chaired by mayor Kalpana Anandakumar on the day, they charged that after the incident in which a contract worker lost his legs while cleaning a shredder machine at the dump yard, none of the officials had visited him in the hospital.
They said the councillors were kept in the dark about the happenings at the dump yard.
R Udhayakumar, councillor from ward 98, demanded a thorough probe into the incident. Mayor Kalpana agreed that there had to be more transparency as far as the Vellalore dump yard was concerned.
Responding to the charges, S Selvasurabhi (commissioner in-charge) said a detailed probe would be conducted into the incident. She said corporation commissioner M Prathap would visit the hospital and meet the accident victim soon.
The councillors also alleged that there was a delay in development works, including the 24×7 water supply scheme and road laying, due to frequent shunting of assistant engineers. The mayor replied that the issue would be looked into.
AIADMK councillor R Prabhakaran was suspended by the mayor for the next two council meetings after he protested against the alleged inaction of the city corporation. He charged that several projects were kept pending after Kalpana became the mayor. As he was suspended, other two AIADMK councillors also joined the protest and sat on the floor outside the council hall by holding placards against proposed collection of one per cent late fee from property tax defaulters.
The council later decided to construct additional rooms at the urban primary health centres at Kavundampalayam, Kuniyamuthur (Sriram Colony, Idayarpalayam), and Thondamuthur. The council also agreed for the construction of 10 new urban sub primary health centres.
The council, however, deferred the proposal for an updated integrated traffic management for the city to be rolled out by the Tamil Nadu Urban Infrastructure Service Finance Corporation.
