Women besiege Cuddalore Municipal Chairman


Residents of Cuddalore demanding free colour television sets from Municipal chairman T.Thangarasu on Monday.


CUDDALORE: 

            The residents, including women, of certain wards in Cuddalore town on Monday besieged Municipal Chairman T.Thangarasu at his office and demanded free colour television sets.

Shortage of TV sets

           The Chairman told them that of the total requirement of 44,000 TV sets the civic body received only 24,000 sets. Therefore, there was a shortage of 20,000 sets that could be fulfilled only after the recent tender procedure initiated by the State government for procuring new TV consignment was completed. In fact, the civic body hoped to withhold the distribution of the TV sets till all the sets were landed.

         But apprehensive of the fact that once the schedule for the Assembly elections was announced the Election Commission might prohibit distribution of the TV sets it was decided to give away the TV sets at random to the residents of various wards. If the new consignment arrives after the initiation of the poll process the distribution could be commenced on the pretext that it was only an on-going project and therefore, should not be construed as an inducement to voters.

               The Chairman told them that he had written letters to the Municipal Commissioner and District Collector to take appropriate measures for obtaining the adequate number of TV sets and it was up to them to arrange for it. The residents later dispersed.
