The Chennai Corporation has planted forest trees like gundumani on Third Cross Street, C.I.T.Colony. This tree has prodigious roots that lifted up the beam under my car gate entailing expensive repairs. My neighbour's compound wall and veranday wall bear cracks. My gate pillar is affected so that the gate is difficult to close and one can easily jam one's fingers if one is not careful. During the last two Decembers, heavy branches fell down and blocked the access to our residences. Our complaints to the Corporation since two years are unattended. In Decemter 2017 I sent online reminders to no effect. Today I find that a mini-lorry from Corporation came to trim the branches in my neighbour's house. I believed that our complaint was working and gave them drinking water etc. To my mortification. they only trimmed the branches in my neighbour's compound and not in our compound. The complaint was originally penned by me on behalf of self and two other residents. What does the selective attending of the problem for only one of the complainants indicate? These are indications that our illustrious PM has been unsuccessful in his mission of freeing us from Corruption.
