India. Irate residents want more Tasmac shops in city closed
A Tasmac shop opposite the Vazhakkai Mandi wholesale banana market in the congested Gandhi market area became a matter of serious concern for the local people.
A group of women led by Trichy district load men association affiliated to the CITU urged the collector to remove the shop to prevent employees in the central market from spending all their income on liquor and putting their health at risk.
"The poor employees are lured to spend their entire income earned by loading and unloading things in the market on liquor, leaving their family in distress. Unruly behaviour of the tipplers led to several crimes in the area," said the district secretary of the association G K Ramar.
Alleging that the sale of liquor was beyond the permitted working hours of 12 pm to 10 pm, women said the liquor shop ruined the future of students in a nearby corporation school. "We learnt that some of the students were consuming liquor in the shop and attending classes," said T Vijayarani.
They submitted their petition to collector K S Palanisamy.
Rural Trichy also witnessed such a protest by around 200 people from Kavalkaranpatti village near Mannapparai on Monday. Their allegation was that the shop was the reason for several fatal accidents in the area involving drunken persons.
As announced earlier, the people gathered in front of the shop that was guarded by the police led by Manapparai deputy superintendent of police Geetha.
In fact, the shop was relocated from Pannankombu near Manapparai to Kavalkaranpatti following a series of protests from people to shift the shop from near a government school. Since then, the people in this area were against the relocation.
Following the decision of the government to close 500 Tasmac outlets, the residents again raked up the issue stating that the shop attracted more school students.
Revenue officials and the police held talks with them and promised to bring the matter to the notice of the collector.
