Residents of Meenakshipuram, a village situated near the Sirumalai range near Dindigal in Tamil Nadu appeal to the State government to provide a link road to their village from Thenkurinchi immediately.
Without a direct road to Meenakshipuram, residents of the village are undergoing difficulties, especially during emergencies like in the need of medical treatment. A seven-km-long narrow path from the village leads to Thenkurinchi, which is the last village with a road on which buses and cars can ply.
From there, the villagers walk up the path which is full of boulders and stones to reach Meenakshipuram. Only small good carriers can travel on this road. To avoid a walk through dense forest, the villagers themselves laid the path around five years back.
However, it is tough for them when the path is inundated with water and gets muddy during rains.
