Kalmunai Council deliberately dumping garbage in Tamil villages

Kalmunai Garbage TruckKalmunai municipal council garbage trucks are continuing to dump garbage collected from Kalmunaikudi and Sainthamaruthu Muslim areas in Tamil predominant Kalmunai, division 2 and 3. These trucks are deliberately dumping garbage near a Hindu Amman Temple in Kalmunai 03.

Kalmunai Tamils and social worker Mr Santhirasekaram rushed to the scene and blocked this illegal activity. They have also lodged complaints to Kalmunai Police, Kalmunai Tamil division Divisional Secretary and Chief Health Officer to take action against Kalmunai Municipal Council.

It should be pointed out that these garbage were collected from Muslim areas in order to minimise the spread of Dengue fever. But the same garbage are being dumped in Tamil area. Tamil people of Kalmunai said to news reporters that Kalmunai municipal council is always biased towards Muslims and they have warned that they will be taking further action regarding this illegal garbage dumping.
