Opposition councillors seek meet on stampede

Staff Reporter

DMK councilor K. Dhanasekar's arrest is only to divert public attention, says Malayan

CHENNAI: Opposition councillors in the Chennai Corporation have called for a Council meeting to discuss last Sunday's stampede at the civic agency-run school in K.K.Nagar.

On Wednesday, party leaders of DMK, Congress, Communists and other constituents of the Democratic Progressive Alliance met at Ripon Buildings and resolved to call for a meeting to discuss the tragedy that claimed 42 lives.

"Police failure"

"The meeting, apart from condoling the deaths, will also highlight the failure of the AIADMK government in systematic distribution of rain relief packages.

"The stampede was a result of the failure of police and the arrest of DMK councillor K. Dhanasekar is only to divert the public attention," C.V. Malayan of the DMK said.

The councillors said the deaths occurred inside a Corporation school and it was therefore necessary to discuss the circumstances.
