Coimbatore: Devotees of Sidhapudhur Ayyappa Swamy Temple and members of the Chinnasamy Naidu Road Land Owners and Residents Welfare Association have planned a dharna in front of Red Cross Society building on Tuesday (February 8) at 10 a.m., to draw the attention of the authorities towards the setbacks that the proposed flyover at Gandhipuram would cause to them.
The Association has also planned to send one lakh post cards to the Chief Minister. After the dharna on Tuesday, the association has planned to observe an one day token fast at Gandhipuram. In the event of their plea fetching no result, the association has threatened to stage a road blockade and then finally jail bharo agitation.
The association pointed out that originally the three tier round-about was planned in Coimbatore where there is enough space and land in the form of bus stand and Jail grounds. But, now the association pointed out that it has come to their notice that the proposed three-tier round-about was coming up at 100 Ft Road - Sathyamangalam Road junction. The memorandum said that the temple has only 24 cents of land and the devotees are already finding the space inadequate for worshipping and performing pujas. Similarly, the proposed move to widen the Chinnasamy Naidu Road and 100 ft road by 40 ft on either side would only spell disaster to the future and livelihood of people living in this area and running business since 1914. The memorandum has also given three alternative suggestions to the machinery, if implemented would relieve the devotees and residents from the risk of acquisition and demolition of structures at the same time not hampering the proposed project.
