Coimbatore: Tahsildars of Kinathukadavu and Sulur, along with officials from the animal husbandry department and Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board (TNPCB), on Tuesday visited Nagarakalandhai at Malaipalayam Panchayat following complaints of housefly menace in the village.
The residents have blamed the poorly maintained two poultry farms in the village for the menace.
B Rajasekar, a villager, said “For the last three years, we have been facing this problem. We are unable to eat peacefully as swarms of flies enter our houses. A total of 300 families, around 1,500 people, are affected. We have also submitted a complaint to the district collector and demanded the permanent closure of the two poultry farms.”
Business and daily life are affected as people are forced to stay indoors, he said.
“The two private poultry farms are not in hygienic condition. This is the reason for the multiplication of flies. The collector has asked for an action plan from us. We will submit a report to him on Thursday,” an official of the animal husbandry department said.
“We will implement the recommendations from the animal husbandry department,” an official of the TNPCB said.
