No law and order problem: Collector

Special Correspondent

In Thirumangalam constituency

MADURAI: The law and order situation in Thirumangalam Assembly constituency is well under check, according to the District Collector P. Seetharaman.

Speaking to reporters here on Monday, after presiding over a meeting attended by representatives from different political parties, he said that adequate steps had been taken to deploy additional forces in sensitive pockets identified across the constituency.

With regard to the clash between the AIADMK and the DMK cadres in the early hours of Sunday, Mr. Seetharaman said that the police had registered 17 cases against both the sides. Special teams had been formed to inquire into the complaints and take action as per law, Superintendent of Police M. Manohar, who was present, said.

All the 106 licensed weapon holders in the constituency had deposited their weapons with the police. Any person from outside the constituency who possessed weapons would be taken to task. “We will detain them under the Goondas Act, if warranted,” Mr. Manohar warned and added that 14 check-posts had been installed in the constituency.

On the use of kalyana mandapams by some political parties, Mr. Seetharaman said that all the 30 mandapams situated in the constituency had been instructed to rent it only to persons willing to perform marriages and family ceremonies. Renting them to political parties for campaign purposes had been restricted since December 29, he clarified.
