AIADMK protests land acquisition for private hospital

By Our Staff Reporter

PONDICHERRY, SEPT. 1. Mr. A Anbalgan, AIADMK MLA and secretary of the Puratchi Thalaivi Peravai, has protested against the move of the Administration to make available large tracts of farm land to a private medical college and hospital here. Referring to a notification for land acquisition, he said a large number of people in several segments including the Uppalam Assembly constituency (from where he is elected) were living without a shelter.

Houseless people in urban pockets were also not taken care of. Instead of considering the plight of the havenots, the Government had initiated steps to pamper private players.

(Already the BJP secretary, Mr. Ragu Sundararaman, registered his protest against the Government making available the land to the private medical college management, ``depriving farmers of their source of livelihood'').
