    In Kancheepuram the whole town is being encroached with unapproved buildings and also with the buildings against the rules.All the platforms,roads and streets are not with the length and breadth of the approved plans.Is there not even a single officer concerned to take proper steps boldly.We get our monthly salary fully,properly and regularly.But do we establish our duties fully.Without car parking areas all the buildings are built up and in that place we allow to build shops.Is it a genuine one.God is noticing every thing. The link road to Ottakkooththar street of Mamallan Nagar from Vallalaar street Min Nagar has been blocked by educated and well income holders.Both the Panchayat and Municipality never bother about encroachments happening in Kancheepuram but they fill up their pockets by that.In Mahendarapallavan street of Mamallan Nagar the Municipality itself has built a sewage water pumping station and a Motor room in the middle of the street itself which causes traffic jam as well as mosquito breeding. In the same street near Mamallan Matric school a sewage water canal up to Plot No B22 has been built up encroaching the road i.e shortening the breath of the road and the dirty water gets stagnated in that water canal and upto Plot No B23 the water spreads like anything and a ditch opposite to Plot No B24 has been formed by manual efforts.At the eastern terminal side of Mahendarapallavan St and KTS Mani Street the connecting road has been blocked and also the nearby open area has been encroached by a political background.Why r all sleeping by slipping the encroachments. Near Pachayappas Hr Se School the four way roads have been converted by the police as a single way in order to minimize their duties and to satisfy many shopkeepers as they get much from the concerned. Is it fair on the part of the officials and the politicians to keep quiet though they see so many illegal things.Rajaji Market has become a place of congestion and people who come to buy vegetables
