Protest demanding closure of RMC plant at Kotturpuram, Chennai which is polluting the environment

Friday, November 28th, 2014 @ 8:39AM

Ready Mix Concrete (RMC) unit which is situated on the bank of Adyar river opposite to Kotturpuram MRTS railway station is creating air pollution by liberating enormous amount of cement dust that causes serious health problems not only to nearby residents, but also to the children studying in nearby schools and colleges. We sent representations to CM cell and there is no prompt response from the authorities in this regard. Along with the federation of Kottur resident’s association we are planning to conduct a Protest demanding the closure of this plant.
