Shekher seeks space to set up MLA's office
The recently elected MLA for Mylapore, S. Ve. Shekher plans to open an office in the neighbourhood.
Shekher says that he is asking the PWD as well as the Corpration of Chennai to grant space where the office can be constructed quickly.
He says that space has been located at two places on C. P. Ramaswamy Road and he hopes the Corporation will develop the space to set up the office. "This location seems central because people from Mylapore as well as from Adyar can access it," Shekher says.
Mylapore is among the few constituencies which do not have a permanent office space for the local MLA.The previous MLA, Lakshman of the BJP had secured a part o
f the Corporation office off Kutchery Road to set up his office.
Shekher is also looking for people who are willing to work in this office - a retired senior person to liase with people who drop in and also a woman to manage the office.
Two weeks into his new job and Shekher is on the go - he visited a San Thome kuppam colony devastated by a fire and filed a question in the Assembly on the nature of housing that was being provided to people who were exposed to such dangers all the time. "The compensation paid to them is simply not enough to start life all over again," he says.
