Srirangam residents threaten to boycott LS polls


TRICHY: A section of Srirangam citizens on Friday announced their determination to boycott the Lok Sabha elections to protest the silence of primary political events over a assets dispute between them and the control of Arulmigu Ranganathaswamy temple.
Residents welfare affiliation Arangama Nagar Nala Sangam, which announced the decision to boycott the polls, stated its participants would hoist black flags at on their houses as a mark of protest on April 18, the day of polling.

In 2004, the Tamil Nadu executive ceased the registration technique of about 329 acres of land across the Srirangam temple and claimed possession of the same.


Though the citizens have title deeds and patta for the disputed homes, they aren't ready to promote or pledge them as the temple authorities claimed rights over the homes and moved a local courtroom in 2009 searching for possession.


With Lok Sabha election campaigning underway, citizens stated not one of the political events -- including the AIADMK and the BJP that have conventional vote financial institution in Srirangam -- came ahead to resolve the dispute.


“As no political birthday party is keen to lend a hand us in persuading the state executive to cede the disputed land in favour people, there is no use for us to take part in the democratic procedure,” stated Arangama Nagar Nala Sangam coordinator Suresh Venkatachalam.
