Virudhunagar Encroachments

January 11, 2012

Dear Readers,

I don’t know how many of you all are aware about the action taken by our collector Mr Balaji to remove the land encroachments throughout Virudhunagar. This post is basically to make the people aware about whats happening @ VNR. I have shot few pictures using my phone and i feel like sharing all the pics with you people.

Picture 1:

Taken @ back side of Mariamman Temple. One of the famous garland shop has been removed.

Picture 2:

Taken @ Front side of Marriamman Temple. 2 famous news paper stall keepers forced to sit inside their shop and do their business, rather than extending the shop as they wish 🙂

Picture 3:

Taken @ VNR Big Bazzar.. Its very rare to see such a neat Bazzar with wide road . Hope it remains the same forever 🙂

Picture 4:

Taken @ Pottal Ground… Just see how big our town Pottal ground is… As of now few government vehicles have been parked there. If they remove all those vehicles, then it will look like a big play ground 🙂

Picture 5:

I don’t know how many of you all aware of this place.. This pic was taken @ the front side of Velundhamman Temple. This area used to be busy from 7 pm to 11pm. There used to ‘n’ number of parotta shops and slipper shops. All are removed now 🙂

Picture 6:

Taken @ Ramoorthy Road… This is the first time in life I got a chance to see Ex minister’s home without any extra fittings put up as they wish in front of his home 🙂

Picture 7:


Taken Near Raja Lakshmi Theater Railway Gate.. You can find 2 major things missing.. One is the Banana shop near that kamaraj Nagar name board and the other one is the parotta stall opposite to that banana shop 🙂 After removing those two shops, roads look wider and spacious.

The above mentioned pictures and explanation are just samples. In the similar fashion, every street has some changes. On the whole, VNR looks neat and clean. But my question is very simple. How many more days police or collector gonna be strict with removing land encroachments ??? I think it will last for one or two more weeks and slowly people will get back to their business of occupying government land and block the road. These kind of removing land encroachments is not new to virudhunagar. They regularly do it and they will do the same in future too.

It’s upto Virudhunagar people have some self responsibility towards the development our town and stop these kind of land encroachment activities.
