Speeding up the sanitary projects in Cuddalore District

        The much-touted scheme of building and maintaining integrated sanitary complexes in each village panchayat failed to take off as villagers preferred open spaces. The scheme launched way back in 1991 by the AIADMK government has now been revived in Trichy district with a fund allocation of Rs 1.7 crore.

        About 400 of the total 404 complexes are being renovated in Trichy district. A meeting was held on Tuesday under the guidance of additional director of the Women Development Corporation R Rajashree here with women development officers of Trichy, Aiyalur, Perambalur, Tiruvarur, Nagapattinam, Cuddalore, Pudukottai and Thanjavur for speeding up the sanitary projects.

        Trichy district women development officer P Vijaya Lakshmi told TOI after the meeting that the convenience complexes were not maintained during the last regime, and some of the members of women self-help groups (WSH) charged a fee for using the facility which villagers did not take kindly to. However, Lakshmi was of the opinion that anything given free would not work out and said the administration had decided to charge a nominal amount per family in the village for the facility, which would be utilised to supplement toiletries for common good.

         Vijaya Lakshmi said the chief minster had taken keen interest in the matter and this time, instead of the WSH groups, the responsibility of maintenance would be entrusted to the villagers themselves, who would be formed into monitoring groups. To start with, renovation would be carried out at the existing 397 sanitary complexes and the remaining that were damaged, would be reconstructed. Moreover, some villages in Lalgudi, Manapparai, and Mannachanallur town panchayats have also been identified for construction of new sanitary complexes in the second phase in the near future so that the ignominy of defecating in the open would be done away with once and for all, said Lakshmi.
