Thanks Arul. Yes it is very sad about that. It seems that even Kaalaikathir newspaper which usually covers such a kind news didn't give any importance on this. Atleast Dinamani published some info.

BTW why Dinamani have set up our region's (Salem, Namakkal, Dharmapuri, Krishnagiri) printing office at Dharmapuri..? Do you have any idea. Indeed it depends on Salem for both the advertisement and news. All the other Tamil dailies have their printing office here. They should have established their office here.

Its only 91.34 sq.km. Pl refer the below link. Even our UA boundary is small by not including real adjoining outgrowths when compared to other cities. All bcoz of our sleeping oppicers. Atleast our City Police Commissioner has taken steps to include some PS in the suburbs with the City Police jurisdiction considering the population growth and households in the suburbs.

சேலத்தில் இருந்து, தினம் தோறும், இரண்டு டன் பூக்கள் பெங்களூருக்கு ஏற்றுமதி செய்யப்படுகிறது. அதிகாலை, 3 மணி முதல், இரவு, 10 மணி வரை, பூ மார்க்கெட் இயங்குகிறது. எப்பொழுதும் மக்கள் கூட்டம் அலைமோதும், பூ மார்க்கெட் மிகுந்த இடநெருக்கடியில் இயங்கி வருகிறது.
குறுகிய இடத்தில் வைக்கப்பட்டுள்ள பூ கடைகள், ஆக்கிரமிப்பின் பிடியிலும் சிக்கி தவிக்கிறது. கடைக்காரர்கள் பலகைகளை வெளியே இழுத்து வைத்து மலர்களை கொட்டி விற்பனை செய்கின்றனர். பொதுமக்கள் கால் வைத்து நடந்து செல்ல முடியாத அளவுக்கு, நெரிசலில் ஏற்படுகிறது.

புது பஸ் ஸ்டாண்ட் அருகே பூ மார்க்கெட்டுக்கு இடம் ஒதுக்கி கொடுப்பதாக தெரிவித்தும், அதிகாரிகள் எவ்வித நடவடிக்கையும் எடுக்கவில்லை. இடநெரிசலை பயன்படுத்தி, "பிக்பாக்கெட்' பேர்வழிகள் பொதுமக்களிடம் பண பறிப்பு, செயின் பறிப்பில் ஈடுபட்டு வருகின்றனர். வ.உ.சி., பூ மார்க்கெட்டுக்கு, பொதுமக்கள் வந்து செல்லும் வகையிலான விசாலமான இட பகுதிக்கு மாற்றிடவும், "பிக்பாக்கெட்' பிரச்னைக்கு தீர்வு காணவும், சுகாதார வசதி செய்து கொடுக்க மாநகராட்சி நிர்வாகம் நடவடிக்கை எடுக்க வேண்டும்.

I think they might be referring to the vacant land in-between the recently constructed corporation overhead tank and two-wheeler parking on western side of bus terminus. But spacious..?

IMHO they should shift the entire VOC Market from Chinnakadai Street to a spacious area on the outskirts of the city on the lines of Koyambedu Market.

Traders had opposed to that proposal citing lack of public transport facility to that area. It seems that Corporation have constructed only a slaughter house there.

The number of traffic violation cases registered by rural police in the district has gone up from 39,801 in 2011 to 81,453 in 2012 which is highest in the last ten years, Superintendent of Police Ashwin M. Kotnis said here on Friday.

Meeting

Speaking at the monthly road safety meeting held at the Collectorate, Mr. Kotnis said that more petty cases, including for overspeeding, drunken driving, and overloading of vehicles, were registered during the year.

Case registered against motorists for driving without helmet has increased from 2,313 in 2011 to 25,277 and driving without license increased from 453 to 12,341.

A total of Rs. 1.45 crore was collected as fine amount for traffic violations during the current year, he added.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Crime and Traffic) J. Ravindran said that a total of 55,701 traffic violation cases were lodged in 2012 and a fine of Rs. 53.34 lakh collected.

When the issue of Ananda Bridge was raised, Salem City Municipal Corporation Commissioner M. Ashokan said that 14,000 square feet land was required for constructing approach roads as Rs. 4.25 crore had been sanctioned by the government for land acquisition.

“Work would be completed in two months time after getting clearance,” he added.

Encroachment on market areas and around Government Mohan Kumaramangalam Medical College Hospital was discussed and city police promised to provide security during eviction.

Collector K. Maharabushanam, who chaired the meeting, said that 24{+t}{+h}Road Safety Week would be observed between January 1 and 7, next year, on the theme ‘Stay Alive, Don’t Drink’.

Awareness programmes would be conducted for students and members of the public.

Autorickshaws

The Collector also asked Road Transport Officials to take action against autorickshaw drivers for parking vehicles at bus stops and causing hindrance to buses.

District Revenue Officer N. Prasanna Venaktesan, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) D.G. Babu, senior police officials, RTOs, Tahsildars and other officials were present during the road safety meeting.
