Virudhunagar Encroachments


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.

    Nice to see the post. Now the VNR is having any road? On my last visit, I saw several cement roads were easily melted over a small rain.. what happend to the underground swage plan.. Does the new collector took any action? will he?

    I am not sure I approve of these. Some of the encroachments – have been more beneficial to ppl than causing problems, like the Poo kadai near Mariamman temple.

    Some of these are also part of VNR’s legacy – like the poratta kadai near veyilundhamman temple (not sure how many other poratta shops have been removed). Remember seeing hot porattas being served even close to midnight.

      Guess your playing the devils advocate.

      No room for communism, One has to work for them self or their kins living.

      • Palani Says:

        No communism.

        My point is that this could be an intelligent trick to gain some good will and publicity without really taking any BOLD measures to resolve the more pressing issues like bad roads, water scarcity etc..

        I would be happy only if the VNR roads get a fresh coat of tar/asphalt along with the broad encroachment-free roads.

    To say in fact the road in bazzar is as wide as the road near the Madurai road KVS schools…. due to encroachments it is very small….if more encroachments are removed…then it would be easier and wider!!!
